How does a job-seeking cover letter stand out in this day and age? [more inside]
I am submitting an application for a graphic design position and they are asking for design portfolios and two pieces of writing. I have no writing to give them. What the hell do I write about? I don't want to put a ton of time into researching topics so I can write about them but, seriously, I got nothing. I am a good writer with no outlet. Help!
It's been almost 10 years since I last changed jobs and it's also been that long since I've written a resume. I'd like to get some (hopefully) expert opinion and editing to bring my resume up to date, both to reflect the skills/experience I've gained and ensure that it is in a format that will be acceptable to recruiters/companies. Has anyone used a resume service recently that you've been pleased with? (I'm located in the NYC metro area if that makes a difference).

My name is listed in the acknowledgment section of a science protocols book where the authors thank me for assistance and advice. The sections that I wrote ended up being reduced to a few sentences, and I was not listed as an author despite a promise of inclusion. Would it be appropriate to include that on my otherwise skimpy CV, or would that be considered tacky?
