15 Stress Relievers for Resume and Cover Letter Writing

Stress reliefIn a recent poll, we asked readers which was most stressful to think about:

A) Writing your will
B) Writing your resume & cover letter
C) Doing your taxes

Out of 885 votes, 76% of you said that writing your resume and cover letter is the most stressful. And while we can't help you draft your will or do your taxes, we can make your job search experience a little less nerve-racking.

How? I compiled a list of our most stress-relieving blog posts on the topics. They provide solutions to puzzling questions and issues that you might face while writing your resumes and cover letters. Give them a read and let me know if they help you feel more confident about your job search.
