A great resume helps you to capture a potential employer’s immediate attention, in a world, more so in the corporate, where first impressions count.
A resume is basically an advertisement – one which helps you present an overview of your qualifications. A great resume sums up all of your experience and credentials in about one to two pages. Research indicates that only 6 to 30 seconds is the time taken by recruiters to go through the resume. Hence, presentation and content become vital when it comes to writing a great resume. A candidate, armed with a great resume, can certainly differentiate themselves into being a potential employee from among those tossed into the file of not deemed fit.
