Greatly appreciate. I thought it up as I was finishing my first book. I wanted to add something like a rant to the end of it and the Unemployed Resume fit what I was going for. I think it works as a great promotional piece as well. You should checkout the article in my portfolio I created to go with it. It's called "Unemployed Resume Lands Job Interview"
