Southworth Company, producer of Southworth® brand premium Résumé paper, business papers and related products, has announced the launch of a helpful website devoted to job seekers which shares free résumé templates, advice on how to write a better résumé, and tips for interviews and networking. The content was developed in collaboration with the National Résumé Writers Association. The site gets its name, http://www.resumenightmare.com, from two featured videos that are embedded on its home page.
Southworth, the leading national brand of Résumé Paper, publishes a new website annually which is dedicated to helping job seekers with résumé writing tips, free résumé templates, interviewing techniques from the pros, and more.
“With so many people out of work this year, we expanded our site to include a broader selection of topics that speaks directly to some of the hardest hit groups such as recent college grads, returning military, and baby boomers.” stated Maura O’Connell, VP of Marketing at Southworth. “We also decided to add video to the site to speak to the YouTube generation. Instead of a dry ‘How to’ we came up with a lighthearted twist to a serious subject by creating two tongue-in-cheek shorts that demonstrate the imagined nightmares of the interview process.”
In addition to a wide selection of top quality résumé paper, Southworth offers a full line of matching folders, envelopes, and other accessories to help create a more professional presentation package.
“ResumeNightmare.com is our way of helping job seekers learn how to build a better résumé for a more successful result,” added David Southworth, President of Southworth Company. “And hopefully our visitors will have a little fun along the way.”

The company manufactures premium business papers, résumé papers, social stationery and other related products under the Southworth® brand sold through major national retailers, office product dealers and international distributors.
