    Your resume may be old school if you have an objective at the beginning. Objectives have fallen away and the use of a branding line and strong summary has replaced them.

A job search is not something many people do on a regular basis. Some professionals experience shorter periods of employment than others, but no one is really “practiced” in hunting for a new job. Some people have never had to actively look for a job, while others only find themselves hunting employment a couple of times over a decade. If it has been several years since you’ve had to use your resume, do not make the mistake of thinking you can dust off that old resume and use it for your new job. Resumes change according to the needs of employers, technology, and the condition of the market. A resume written even a few years ago may be out-of-date. A resume originally prepared a long time ago and only added to over the years is a dinosaur!

Do you have a resume that is "old school"? If so, you should consider having a new document prepared. Just as the advertising and marketing methods of companies such as Coca-Cola and Apple have changed over time, your resume must change, too. What worked in the 80’s, 90’s or even earlier this decade probably won’t work well in today’s job market.

GetInterviews.com has compiled the following list of signs of an "old school" resume.
