Career Services Why a Resume

What will a resume do for me?

  • Enable you to assess your strengths, skills, abilities and experience - thereby preparing you for the interview process
  • Act as a reminder of you to the employer/interviewer after you're done interviewing
  • Be a basis for the interviewer to justify your hiring
  • The ultimate goal of a resume is to gain you an interview!

Resume development is an ongoing process. It is important that you keep this document up-to-date. Remember that employers will be basing their interview decision (that is, shall we interview this candidate or not) on your resume. They will look at content (both what is and isn't included) and format/style.
