Remember, usually your resume is the first impression a potential employer will have of you. Top resumes which attract the most attention (and ultimately land you the most interviews) are those that outline your achievements and value to the company in a short, sharp and proactive way.
Take into consideration the fact that often hiring managers are swamped by hundreds of resumes for any one job, and they may only have a couple of minutes to scan each one. This is why it is so imperative that the information you list on your resume is concise, easy to read, and follows a reverse-chronological order i.e. listing your most recent job history and education first.
In particular, employers will be looking for the below key information about you:
- contact details
- career strengths
- employment history
- education & training
what else should you include?
