Creating a Resume
Objective: A brief, concise statement of what you hope to achieve in your job search. It should focus on the type of job you want and the skills you have that are relevant. Experience: A description of past employment experiences, including job titles, dates of employment, and the duties and responsibilities associated with each job. Education: A list of educational institutions attended, degrees earned, and any relevant coursework or certifications.
It is suggested to update your resume at least every six months to keep it up to date. Including a photo of yourself in your resume is not recommended. It is important to include measurable accomplishments in your resume rather than just listing your duties and responsibilities.
