With the unemployment numbers across America reaching alarming rates, millions of people are submitting resumes. Problem is, every time someone submits a resume, there are hundreds and sometimes even thousands more being submitted right along side it. So just how do you go about submitting a stellar resume that will get people to take notice (and call you for an interview)? The rules have changed for the 2010 resume, and keeping up with these changes may give you just the edge you need.

“Right now, people need something that is going to help get their resume noticed,” suggests John Thieman, Career Development Specialist at Stratford University. “In order to stand out and get those calls, you really have to pay attention to what is in your resume and who it is going to. While you will need to place more emphasis on the particulars, it can be done successfully.”

Everything old is new again.” The saying holds true for a strong, growing culinary evolution, the Farm–to-Table movement. Restaurant chefs and home cooks alike are increasingly returning to farms, local producers and farmers markets to buy their food, just as it was a necessity less than 100 years ago. Today most of our food comes mass produced from enormous, far-away, industrial producers. But some savvy chefs, and now Stratford University’s culinary students, are learning to use the incredible bounty of locally grown foods.
