Do a brochure instead of a resume. This is a great way to find temporary or contract work which may lead to a full-time position. Send the brochure to your target group, offering your services on a contract basis. Speak to their needs on the front cover. Profile your projects and accomplishments on the inside three flaps. Use the inside flap for quotes from your references. Reserve the back panel for your mini bio. Include a photo if you’re good looking.
Hand address the envelope you mail it in
Buy glossy brochure paper which will run through your laser printer from stores like Office Max and Business Depot. I order mine directly from Paper Direct, www.paperdirect.com
You can lay it out easily in Microsoft Publisher or a similar program.
Lead with your best foot.
Keep it business-like in tone.
Keep the copy short.
Make sure your address and contact information are easy to find.
Keep the font type to a serif because they’re easiest to read.
Use italics and underline sparingly.
Make good use of white space.
Provide your website address.
