Resume WritingYour resume is typically the first impression an employer will have of you. It needs to market your skills and accomplishments - as they relate to the job for which you're applying.

This means taking the time to target your resume specifically to the jobs you're interested in. Just like with cover letters, a customized resume can help your application get noticed.

Employers usually only spend 30 seconds or so reviewing each resume. So, that first impression needs to be the one that counts. Given how many resumes are submitted for each job opening, your resume needs to be one that makes a stellar impression!
