Example of Resume

A resume is a document used by persons to present their backgrounds and skills.

A resume is considered to be one of the most important tools for a job seeker. A resume is you on paper. Hence, you want it to best represent yourself. A resume can be tricky, as it has to effectively showcase an applicant’s education history and work experience. A resume should ideally be one to two pages long, so the problem lies is how you accurately depict yourself within those two pages. Here is an example of a resume to help you prepare your own resume:
