A resume is a written presentation of your qualifications for a particular opportunity. It is a document that evolves and changes as you experience new things, so it requires frequent updates. An effective resume should:

  • Be customized to the specific opportunity you are seeking
  • Present only your most recent and relevant experiences
  • Demonstrate your skills focusing on result and accomplishments
