The resume is a tried and true method of presenting our experience and a necessary part of the hiring process. Though the format can seem antiquated, cumbersome, or flat, almost every hiring authority I have worked with has required them.
Where do you start. We suggest all resumes include:
*Contact information - make it easy for them to contact you, visible, easy to read font
*Chronological progression - most hiring reps prefer to know your timeline, though it may not always be the best way to showcase your talents, it is preferred in the hiring chain
*Results over responsibilities - what impact did you have at your previous employers, what did you learn, what did you achieve is much more impactful than bullet points of responsibilities
*Resumes should always be specific to the position you are applying to - don't do one and forget it, take a few minutes to customize
