Resume Tips

 

Resumes layouts are as diverse as the people who write them, and so is the content, within the resumes, that is put in it. Some experts would tell you that your resume should be on one page. While others say it should be no more than three pages, including the cover letter. We think that the length of the resume should provide key information, which is tailored to the job you are applying for; it should be in a concise and orderly fashion, highlighting your work, and should be easy to read.

We have provided you with a template to give you a head start. There are no hard and fast rules to resume generation, but our outline is a good start.
