The importance of a well written Professional Resume cannot be stressed upon enough. A Resume is a medium for advertising yourself, it’s the first means in which you use to present yourself as a job applicant and try to claim that you are the best choice candidate to a prospective employer.
On average an employer or Recruiter takes only 8-10 seconds to screen your Resume and Job Application Cover Letter before considering an applicant to either be shortlisted for a pre-screen telephone interview or not.
Your Professional Resume should be visually appealing and also attractive to the eye. It needs to be factually accurate, including dates of employment, education completed, job titles, and skills possessed in each role demonstrating your growth as a professional in each individual role. The writing in your Resume should be concise, succinct, and to the point. Use of proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation must be in your tone of writing. A Resume should reflect who you are and your professional experiences.
