Your first impression with a potential employer is often the resume. The resume often determines if you get an interview. Your resume must demonstrate a level of professionalism and addresses the position qualifications an employer is hiring for. Additionally, keep the audience in mind. A design firm may be looking for a creative and unique resume whereas an IT employer may be looking for simple and concise resume format. Use the resume to express yourself in context of the employer.
