Importance of an Effective Resume

Writing an effective resume is vital to gaining the perfect internship, shadowing, or research program to showcase yourself to employers. A resume is a custom designed, written summary of your background. It provides a thumbnail sketch of your education, experience, and qualifications to a prospective employer. An effective resume targets a specific job and relates your skills and experience to that position. To learn more about resume’s please click here and about PAR Statements click here.
