The Resume

Even with e-mail, Facebook, LinkedIn and other technologies — the resume remains the foundation of the Job Search. New people to the workforce need guidance on the content and format of their resume while those who have been working for some time need to have their resumes reviewed as they tend to lose objectivity after reading it over a period of years.

It has never been easier to distribute a resume to potential employers or receive resumes from potential employees. Because of speed and volume, it is key that your resume get the attention of the recipient and communicate who you are — very quickly!

CNN reported that you have about 6 to 10 seconds to create interest with the reader of a resume. Once that interest is sparked, the resume must communicate how your skills and experience match the requirements of the job you’re applying for.
