A strong resume paints a clear, concise picture of your experiences, skills and strengths. For employers, resumes work as both introductions to and reminders of potential employees; many even use resumes as guidelines for interviews. For applicants, resumes are self-evaluation tools; creating, rereading and updating your resume can help you perceive what you can offer in the job market and to construct your career goals.
Not everyone's resume will look the same or have all of the same information, but a strong resume will be well-organized and will make it easy for the reader to find key information.
