Even if you think you resume is fantastic, it is always a great idea to get a second or third opinion. If you have been working on your resume for a while or even if you pull your resume together quickly, it is customary that when reviewing our resume, we become “blind” to any errors or mistakes. Having a second set of eyes ready to review your resume is essential in many ways. They can make suggestions as well as evaluate the overall quality of your resume.

It is also likely that you will send your resume via email to most decision-makers or potential employers and apart from having the word version of your resume ready to submit as an attachment, you should also have a text version of your resume that is easy to scan through or read in the body of the email or in online forms. Remember, attachments might get blocked by spam filters. Having a second set of eyes to review your resume in plain text, also ensures your resume if free to from errors.
