What is a resume?

  • A carefully crafted self-marketing tool designed to prove your capability for a role and win you an interview.
  • Preferably three A4 pages in length and printed on single-sided paper.
  • It is the means by which you will make your first impression with an employer, so it needs to be professional in content as well as in presentation.
