A resume is a document that is divided into many
sections. Each section of a resume plays a specific
role. As you write your resume, it is useful to
understand the role that each section plays. It is also
important to have an appreciation of what you can
include and how you can convey the information as
effectively as possible.
Following is a list of the main sections of a resume:
- Contact Information
- Summary of Qualifications
- Work Experience
- Professional Affiliations
- Computer Skills
Each applicant has a different background. That’s why each
resume is unique.
If you feel that there are elements of
your background that may be relevant to the recruiter, you
can include that information in your resume. That’s why the
last category listed above is “More”. That being said, make
sure that the information that you want to convey is truly
relevant and job related. Don’t fall in the trap of
including unnecessary information or personal information.
