Building that perfect résumé
What is a résumé?
A résumé is a marketing tool that summarizes one’s employment qualifications for a targeted audience.
- The product being marketed is you.
- It should be factual, accurate, honest and result-oriented.
- It is a documentation of your past and it is geared towards your future.
- Emphasis is on skills and accomplishments rather than on attitude and personality traits.
- The goal is to enable you to get into face-to-face interaction with the person who has authority to hire you.
- A résumé is not a work of fiction.
