Before getting to the temp job listings below, I want to share two surprises with
you - one good and one bad.

We've been putting out this newsletter - the only insider's guide to
temp jobs in NYC - for about two weeks now, and we're getting a tremendous
response. I expected the newsletter to grow, but not quite this quickly. 

So that's a good surprise. Now for the bad...

I'm learning that a lot of people on this list don't have up-to-date resumes written and some that
do, are too embarrassed to send them out. If that's you, here are four tips to break free of
procrastination and get this critical step done. 

If you have a great resume already, you can skip these tips and scroll down to the
temp job listings below.

Four Resume Tips

1 - If you have a resume, spend 10 minutes right now reading it and listing out the
top three things you want to change about the resume. 

If you don't have a resume, open a blank Word doc, put your name and address at
the top (centered) and simply list your last few jobs (title and company name). Or if
you're a student, list your school names and degrees.

That's it. I'm not asking you to do anything more. If you feel inspired from there, great.
Otherwise you've still taken action and gotten yourself pushed another step forward.

2 - A poorly written or outdated resume can kill your chances of getting a job. 
However, nothing's going to hurt your chances more than not applying for the job at all.
Even if your resume is absolutely terrible, if you can't bring yourself to fix it, use it to
apply for the job and commit to yourself that before every job application, you'll
spend five or ten minutes fixing your resume up a little bit. You'll be surprised how
quickly that improves your resume. Apply to 5 positions, and your resume
goes through 5 iterations of improvement.

3 - Be realistic. The purpose of your resume is simply to get an interview. It has
to be good in order to do that, but don't give it more power than it deserves. No one
will hire you based on your resume alone.  It should be 100% accurate, but doesn't
need to be 100% perfect. Focus on getting it good enough to get you the interview. 
Striving for perfection simply fuels more procrastination.

4 - Get professional help. If you're still stuck after applying the above tips, consider
a resume writing service. We've heard good things about ResumeEdge. They have
various resume writing services and if you spend more than $150, you can use
a coupon they sent to our staff.

The coupon code is REJULY.  The offer ends soon (July 18), but you're better off taking care of this
sooner rather than later anyway.
