Simply dumping information in a resume doesn’t open interview windows.
It is imperative to know what type of information goes where on a resume.3
Before you build your resume, it is important to understand the “parts of your resume”. Also, deciding whether to use a resume objective or a summary is essential. Employers invest a lot of time and money on you as a new and untried employee, and they need to be at least given the benefit of a well-written resume.
Organize the facts into various categories in your resume:
• Contact information
• Objective or summary of qualifications
• Competencies and skills
When you fill out information in this order, you will be presented with a carefully crafted resume that an employer cannot refuse. Here is a template for your reference:
