Modern resume writing for houseperson positions seems daunting but in reality it’s not as difficult as it seems. All you needs to do is stick to the basics of a resume and include only job relevant information.

Unnecessarily long and story-like resumes are not effective and are seldom read till the end.

Short and to-the-point resumes are much preferred over the old fashioned and lengthy ones these days.
