So what is a resume anyway?
It is the primary marketing tool you have to secure an interview. Employers, human resource professionals and placement service agency representatives have stacks of resume and applications to weed through in today’s job market. If you want yours to stand out, you better be solid on the basics, like spelling and grammar.
Beyond that, your resume needs to grab the attention of the reviewer with its visual appeal, education background, job experience, accomplishments, and so on.
Even if your work history is brief, chose language that is compelling and descriptive in detailing your contributions on the job. Remember, you are selling yourself to secure a face-to-face interview through your resume.
