The Basics of Building Your Resume

A resume is an important tool for your job search as it offers a page or two where you can display your relevant skills and qualities for a job.

Resumes help employers make hiring decisions and help you get your first interview. That’s why it matters how you structure your resume and what information you decide to include.

Your resume should communicate four things:

  • Your qualifications
  • Your brand
  • Who you are
  • What makes you different to employers and recruiters.

When applying for an internship or job, you need a resume that helps you stand out in a sea of applicants. Ultimately, the purpose of a strategically targeted, polished resume is to get you an interview.
