Who should I have review my resume? Also, can you direct me on ways to improve my skills through training in my 30s?

Hello,  I would recommend partnering with individuals who have an HR background to review your resume.  Additionally, each state has a workforce center who are happy to assist with reviewing and providing guidance on your resume.  Additional training taken should be added to a resume to show the expansion of skills that you've receive.  Ensure you are rewarded for your hard work by including that as well on your resume.
Good luck!

Hello there!  Smart move having another set of eyes check out your resume.  If you don't have anyone who hails from a recruiting background to give you tips, go check out community boards for your fiend of interest.  Or go for the old favorite...networking on LinkedIn! Recruiters are out there and just might do you a solid and check out your resume.  There are options through workforce planning where you live.

Without knowing what industry you are in, it is hard to direct you to training that is specific.  Typically, I would say free training comes from your city/state workforce team, training that will cost you some cash can be anything from trade school, community college, certificate programs in your field, all the way up to a college degree, masters or doctorate program. 

For me personally, I consider it worthwhile to get training whenever, wherever, forever.  I am a lifetime learner and am always looking for something to add to my repertoire of knowledge.  If you are looking for a new direction for your life, this can be a great way to find it!  Best of luck!

Having a second pair of eyes to review your resume is always a great idea. I would recommend you visit your local career center. There’s a lot you can do on your own time to improve your skills. I would recommend to take a class, attend a seminar, read articles, you could even ask your work if they offer any training.

Great idea to have someone review your resume! It is always smart to have a second or third set of eyes look it over. I think the easy answer here is career services at your college or university. If you are not currently enrolled in school, there are plenty of other outlets you can use. I would first recommend starting with your current network of peers. Don't be afraid to ask your friends, connections or family members. If you know someone in the HR profession, start there. In addition, do some research online to get a feel for different resume formats and tips.
In regards to improving your skills through training, it is hard to answer this without knowing your profession. I would recommend doing some research online for your profession to see what options may be available for training. You can also connect with professionals in your field through trade organizations or local business networking groups. Your peers are a great resource to provide insight on useful skills and training.
