I would like to find a new job, but I think my first step should be to brush up on my job search skills. What recommendations do you have for how to do that?

I loathe looking for work (which is why I've been with my current company for lo these many long, tedious years) and am not even sure I know how to write a resumé in the current style. And I know that in this economy and especially given that I'm in a tight field anyway (I'm an editor), I'm facing a challenge and had better both polish and sharpen my rusty job search tools.
I suppose what I'm looking for here is resources for learning how to finesse a job search: the best job search books to read, the best websites to visit, tried and true tips from your own experiences, and so on. Thanks in advance!
