I used to work at the Texas Workforce office helping folks find jobs. I put together these tips. Basically, you stand out first by being neat and spelling correctly. Beyond that, you want to show that you can do what the job requires. That means you read the job description and, to the best of your ability, show that you have done what they are asking for. You also want to show that you understand business is all about making or saving money. See this link for my hints, resume websites and a template, etc. Let me know if you have questions!
