The primary purpose of the resume is to present employers and others with a targeted summary of who you are, especially your priorities, interests and accomplishments. A well-constructed resume provides adults the ability to quickly scan your academic, pre-professional and personal history. An essential feature of your resume must differentiate you from other candidates. Can you demonstrate your growth and progression, and highlight your accomplishments and experiences? In this blog, you will learn the purpose of the resume, proper formatting, content essentials, as well as what not to include.
The resume is not primarily your history of your life. It is a marketing tool to present you like a commercial on TV. Please remember that effective resumes get noticed and serve you best by emphasizing your relevant accomplishments and potential contributions to the job, all while focusing on your brand, related skills and your reflections.
