"Most job seekers forget that the résumé is a tool to propel them into a job, not simply regurgitate their past. Like dressing for the job you want not the one you have, develop a résumé for the job you want," he adds.

In the story published in the Chicago Tribune, Katy Piotrowski, author of The Career Coward's Guide to Résumés, advises, "A decent résumé will generate, on average, at least one interview for every 10 applications submitted. If your results are less than that, it's likely that your documents are doing you a disservice, and it may be time for an overhaul."

Langerud has been quoted in a number of articles on careers, chicago tribune masthead.jpgincluding one in which he offered tips that supervisors and managers can use to improve their job performance. He was cited in another article on the salaries 2010 college graduates can expect, a piece on shy employees, and a Pittsburgh Post-Gazette story on the ramifications of employees sharing information about their salaries within the workplace.
