A good resume is an extremely important tool in the job-search process. Because firms are inundated with resumes, your resume must be able to get the attention of the hiring partner and create a good, strong impression at a brief glance. Your resume is your sales pitch to the hiring partner. It is not merely a recitation of your life's chronology. You need to make your value to the employer clear, and because your resume will likely only get about 30 seconds of the partner's time, you need your value to be emphasized and evident from a quick scan and cursory examination.
