Employers review your resume before connecting with you. Given the many that apply, this usually takes seconds. Consequently, we must use limited words while we also have to be sure that the resume is well-written and grammatically correct.
The resume must say almost everything about the person. This should always start with pertinent information such as the person’s name and contact information.
Next, is the Summary which briefly gives the audience an idea of what to expect as they continue to read the resume. It’s almost like a quick introduction. If written in a precise and concise way, one can give a very professional introduction.
