Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to my resume-writing colleagues!

It's January -- and with the change to the New Year comes the hordes of job seekers, prompted by the promise of the new jobs that come with new fiscal budgets, and spurred by New Year's resolutions to get a job ... or a better job.

I was in Denver over the weekend to watch my alma mater's college hockey team (Nebraska-Omaha Mavericks) take on the hometown team (Denver University Pioneers) and was at a pre-game tailgate party at Chopper's Sports Grill when I noticed a neon sign lit up in the window across the street. My heart soared at the sight of the single, red-lit word: "Résumés."

Of course, it was New Year's Day, and the business was closed. I didn't have my laptop with me, so I couldn't look up and see if it was a colleague that I knew. But back in Omaha today, I pulled up Google and found the service I was looking for: Cherry Creek Resume Service. I checked and I don't have this particular resume company in my database (I will be adding it though) and I will be calling the owner to offer my congratulations on an attention-getting sign. I just wish I had brought my camera along ...
