What’s a Resume?

A summary of your education, experience, and other qualifications which can be submitted in an online application for a job, internship, or grad school, emailed directly to a recruiter, handed out at a career fair, or posted on sites such as Handshake.

Why Does It Matter?

Organizations will choose the best resumes submitted to determine the best candidates to interview. Without an attractive resume, you’re unlikely to get a job, internship, or admission to grad school.
