Resume

A resume is a document intended to show to a potential employer, as “objectively” as possible, why your experience and qualifications make you the best candidate for the job. Objectively was put in quotes because, although the resume has to be written in an impersonal tone, the content of the resume is very subjective: What do you believe your experience was? What do you believe your accomplishments were? What do you believe you contributed to your prior employers?
