What's a resume?
Before you sit down for a job interview, fill out an application, or even talk to a potential employer, you’re going to need a resume. Think of a resume as a fact-sheet, listing everything from work history to school achievements. The topic? You.
Since your resume is a first introduction to a potential employer, it should be flawless. So, what questions do resumes often answer?
- Do you have special skills?
- Have you worked before?
- Can you hold down a job long term?
- Have you won awards?
- Are you a good student?
- Are you careless?
- Are you responsible?
Your resume isn’t going to answer every question about who you really are, but a good resume, however, can easily land you an interview and give employers a glimpse of what you’re made of.
