Composing a Resume

A resume can be described as your personal advertisement. It describes where you have been, what you have done, and where you are currently directing your career. It always includes positive facts about your accomplishments and your work-related duties and responsibilities. The goal of a resume is to obtain an interview from a prospective employer by convincing them that you have the skills they are looking for.
