Resumes don't get jobs, they get interviews
Your resume is an essential tool for your job search. Resumes don’t get jobs, they get interviews. They give a brief overview of your background, skills and experience. An effective resume is basically a selling tool – a chance for you to market your skills and strengths that make you an ideal candidate for the job.
Make it as thorough as possible.
Your resume is also a personal reflection of you: your skills, your experience and your style. Personalize it. There is no absolutely correct way to do your resume.
Choose the format that best highlights your strengths and accomplishments.
Remember that employers receive hundreds of resumes and may only glance over them to find those that catch their eye. You need to ensure that yours will catch their eye by paying attention to your resume’s organization, appearance and content.
