Resumes are used to make an appreciative first impression on a prospective employer. For this reason, it is often referred to as a mainspring of a successful job search. Without a favourable initial impression, a prospective employer is likely to stop considering you as a suitable candidate for the job on offer and move on to other candidates who have provided better resumes. The CV/resume, while important is not always the chief decision making element when a company hires. There’s always the interview but usually, it takes a well written commending resume to get you to the interview.
Sometimes it is helpful to think of the resume as an advertising agency or a tool to market yourself.
CV/resume is your one, or sometimes, two-page document narrating why you are a good fit for that opportunity. It outlines your background, your skills, and your education so that a potential employer is quickly and easily able to see how your individual experiences can contribute to a company’s success.
