Do I even need a resume?
The short answer is yes. If you’re in the job market without a resume, you are taking a long-distance trip without a roadmap.
No resume = no opportunity.
Interviewers and recruiters want to see your work experience in an easy to read format. They screen your credentials long before they invite you for an interview. From the employer perspective, there are literally hundreds of candidates to choose from.
At most, a resume will only get about six to eight seconds of scanning by a human.
So how do you get your resume to stand out?
Even if you have never written a resume before, or have a resume but not getting the results you want, fear not. You can do this.
