Plug in basic information and Cypress Resume creates a perfectly-formatted document. Resumes can be printed out or posted online.

A resume needs to grab the attention of an employer almost immediately in order to have the best chance of making it through the weeding process. Cypress Resume’s gigantic library of tens of thousands of professional statements is designed to do just that. Its database covers virtually all professions, grouping job types by core tasks.

Library Director Amy Levine points out that this is another tool which community members seeking employment or a career change can utilize. In addition to traditional resume writing and job-hunting books, patrons across the state have access to Learning Express, which provides an enormous wealth of information on licensing, certification, online career preparation, and essential information for a wide variety of occupations; it also has practice aptitude and other tests.
