Resume and Professional Writing Resources

The purpose of a résumé is to market your skills and experience to ultimately secure an interview. In this competitive job market, employers may receive hundreds of résumés and so only spend a few seconds with each. How can you capture their attention? Put your most relevant skills, experiences, projects, volunteering, etc. in the top half of the résumé. And don’t try to cram in everything you’ve ever done, focus it on this job and what this specific employer is looking for. Learn more about making a great résumé below.
