A résumé is a summary of your qualifications used to communicate your value to employers. It details your skills and training, work experience, education and accomplishments. A résumé is your opportunity to tell your story to employers and establish your credibility, with the goal of securing an interview.
Potential employers will spend a short amount of time looking at your résumé. The easier your résumé is to scan, the better you can hold their attention. Most recruiters and hiring managers will focus their attention on the following résumé sections:
- Name and contact information
- Education and achievements
- Employment history
- Relevant skills and experiences
