Your resume is an essential tool in your professional branding toolkit. It lets the recruiters know a little about you in a short amount of time and is traditionally used to apply for employment, internships, volunteer opportunities, etc.
Keep in mind that resumes do not get you hired, they get you an interview. Writing a relevant resume is critical, as most recruiters screen resumes for a few seconds before deciding if they will keep reading or not. Utilize key words and phrases that will show the reader that you are a fit for whatever opportunity it is that you are applying for. Use the following resources to help you get the most out of your resume!
