As with most infrequent tasks, writing a resume can be frustrating for the novice. Writing a resume can be a daunting task as it can be difficult to objectively communicate your professional experience without either minimizing your accomplishments or overstating your importance. As a general rule, most people are uncomfortable “selling” themselves on paper and thus cannot write a compelling resume.
An excellent resume and cover letter are essential tools for creating a professional first impression with hiring managers. They often determine whether or not you’ll be invited to interview for the job.
