For almost 10 years, Directory of Schools has maintained a similar
comprehensive listing of U.S High Schools on its website. Designed as a
resource for those who are relocating or who are seeking additional
information about their local schools, this listing has aided students and
parents in their information searches.
Financial aid is a crucial part of any college search; and most of the
colleges and universities included in the new listing are equipped with
designated financial aid departments and counselors that provide information
to students regarding scholarships and grants, student loans, FAFSA, and
more. They offer resources regarding completing federal and private
financial aid applications, looking into alternative education financing,
finding disability resources, and locating grant monies that target specific
groups of applicants.
Free resume templates online
The developers of the “Who Are You Anyway” job skills test recently launched
downloadable free resume templates online at whoareyou
anyway.com/resumes.php. The service not only provides users with three
different resume formats, but it can also place their information in the
resume format of their choosing. There are three styles to choose from on
the site: straightforward, aggressive and eye-catching.
Once on the website, users simply complete a form that includes information
about their education, past work history and experience, choose their
preferred format and click submit. The website then develops the resume from
the information they provided. Once the resume is complete, users can print
and download the resume for future use.
“Oftentimes the best candidates are overlooked because their resume ends up
in the trash,” says Gary Sutton, developer of the WAYA job skills test and
free resume templates. “This website will help ensure job seekers’ resumes
pinpoint the highlights of their education and work experience while keeping
the format clean and easy to read,” he adds.
While on the resume templates website, users can also access the job skills
test that can help them discover their unique job skills, find the right
career, and find out how to find their first job fast.
