How to Write a Résumé... Because the Economy Still Stinks

Looking for a job? Chicago-based web comedienne Liz Thompson gets some résumé advice in the latest installment of her vlog series “How to Liz”, in which she learns 52 things in 52 weeks with the help of her friends. Most important lesson learned? Work often, sometimes.

Liz gets points for no-frills vlogging. Apparently all you need to build a following are colored markers, a three-second GarageBand theme song, impeccable timing, and some very funny friends. Chicago comedy buffs should keep an eye out: Liz’s friend roster includes some iO and Second City regulars. And her newest fan is Looking for Alaska author and vlogbrother John Green.

Other “How to Liz” highlights include How to Be Fit!, How to Maintain Eye Contact!, and the surprisingly chilling How to Solve a Murder!
