How To Write The Perfect Resume

The purpose of a resume is to relay your accomplishments and qualifications to an employer. A resume lists in one place everything you have done in your career, so an employer can scan through it quickly to see if you a match for a position.

The perfect resume is focused, clear, and written well. Here are some tips to crafting it successfully:

Your resume is a promotional piece about you, and is your opportunity to shine and impress employers. If you are a match for a position, an employer will bring you in for an interview. If you have less than what an employer is looking for, you will be seen as underqualified. If you have more than what the employer is looking for, you will be seen overqualified. No one is going to give you a chance to explain yourself. If you want a job, it's up to you to prove that you can do it. Your resume is your proof.
