Upcoming Event

What is the purpose of a résumé/CV?

The purpose of a résumé/CV is to GET AN INTERVIEW! An employer will select applicants on the basis of how well their skills match up with the job requirements.  Sometimes the difference between getting an interview and being placed in the “no” pile is a well put-together résumé/CV.

 Top two things to remember about résumés/CVs:

1. RELEVANCY – how relevant is the information about yourself to the position you are applying for?

2. CLARITY – how clearly can you present this information to the audience reading your résumé/CV?
