Build Your Résumé - What it is - what it isn't

While the résumé is an essential tool in the job search process, experience indicates that it is also essential to understand what a résumé is not.
  • A résumé is designed to attract attention in order to gain an interview and ultimately secure the job. It is your personal brochure and should be like the front page of a newspaper - it should prompt an employer's interest and make them want to learn more about you.
  • A résumé is not an autobiography. You will spend time and effort, and probably produce several drafts, before you have a finished product. Some details of your activities will be eliminated as choices are made to capture your background on a few pages.
  • Remember too, that the résumé is not the only tool in the job search process.  It should never be used to replace personal contact.
