Writing Your Best Resume - Introduction

Introduction: Writing Your Best Resume

Writing a resume is frequently an after-thought. You see an advertisement or hear of a job opening and need to send a resume. So the precious document is hastily created or revised from an old resume, without taking time for a little planning and forethought.

A resume is still the first introduction most organizations have to a candidate, and that makes it extremely important. Your resume should be written before you actually need it, and produced with particular attention to its overall structure. Watch this space for steps to take in deciding the best approach to take, how to write a great resume, and lists of some do’s and never do’s.
