Creating a Resume
A resume is an integral part of any job search, helping you gain invitations to interviews. Your resume is a one-page summary that highlights your skills and experiences from an academic, employment and co-curricular perspective. It provides employers with a first impression of you as a candidate so it needs to be accurate, descriptive, easy-to-read and free of errors.
