What is a Resume?
Resume is a written documentation of the good things a person has done in the past along with his qualities in the professional field.
Resume is your first encounter with your interviewer and hence cannot be underestimated. It is the document that the interviewer will go through before you actually meet him/her in person. A good written resume can perform miracles for letting you land on your dream job. A professionally written resume could serve the purpose. Today, there are a lot of free resources or web sites over the internet that will come handy for you. The same stands true for cover letter as well.
Professional resume writers know how to research properly and present the information in a manner that is most appealing. Another way out is to research which by the way has become very is easy with internet today. And at the end of the day you will come out with an excellent resume by your own.
