Sample text

If individual questions don’t apply to you, skip them, otherwise, include as much specific information as possible. One of the worst mistakes you can make as a job applicant is lying on your resume. These days, almost all employers check resumes and references before offering someone a job. If an employer discovers that you weren’t 100 percent honest, the chances that he’ll offer you the job are minute. Your resume should be used to help you land jobs you’re totally qualified for, not as a tool to convey lies or misinformation to a potential employer.

Continue by writing the letter “B” or the number “2” next to pieces of information that you’d like to include in your resume, but aren’t absolutely critical. When this is done, review your notes again, this time placing a “C” or the number “3” next to items that aren’t too important, but could convey information about you. During the next review of your notes, write an “X” next to items that don’t belong anywhere in your resume. These pieces of information may still be useful, for example, when writing your cover letters or preparing other materials to be submitted or discussed with a potential employer during an interview.

Now that you understand what a resume is, it’s also important to understand what it’s not. Your resume is just one of the tools you’ll be using to land a new job. This document will often provide you with your initial introduction to a potential employer (if you submit a resume in response to an ad, for example). When combined with a well-written cover letter, your resume package can help a potential employer make an educated judgment about whether or not it’s worth their time to invite you for an interview in order to learn more about your skills, experience, and qualifications.
