RESUME TEMPLATES 

WHY ARE RESUMES SO IMPORTANT

The average employer spends only 10 seconds looking at a resume. In this increasingly competitive job market, you must have a professionally crafted resume to stand out.  The purpose of your resume is to make a good first impression, and if you cannot achieve this goal, then your chances of an interview are virtually impossible.

YOUR RESUME SHOULD ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS

  • Who are you? 
  • What can you do for me? 
  • Do you have the skills I'm looking for? 
  • Where have you worked before?
  • Is your experience relevant to my needs? 
  • Do you have the right education and credentials? )
  • What kind of person are you? 
  • Do I see any "red flags" in your background? 
  • Can I easily get in touch with you?
