In an economy said to have no jobs, you cant afford to drop the ball when it comes to learning news skills and re-furnishing your resume. You see most employers look out for that resume with the extra sauce, so in a situation where there are 10 vacant spots and 1,000 resumes are sent in, be sure that if your resume has a lot of extras in it, you have higher chances of yours being chosen from the pack.
