What is A Resume?

A resume is a document that provides a summary of a person's education, work experience, and qualifications. It is usually one or two pages long and is used to apply for jobs. It is the most common document used in the United States and other countries for job applications.

What is Resume?


What Details or Information Should Be Included in The Resume?

  • Contact Information: This includes the candidate's name, address, phone number, and email address.

  • Summary or Objective: A brief statement that highlights the candidate's qualifications and experiences that make them a good fit for the position.

  • Education: This section lists the candidate's educational background, including the degrees earned and the institutions attended.

  • Work Experience: This section lists the candidate's work experience, including the companies worked for, job titles, and responsibilities.

  • Skills: This section lists the candidate's relevant skills and abilities, such as computer skills, language skills, and certifications.

  • Awards and Honors: This section lists any awards or honors the candidate has received, such as academic honors or professional awards.


A resume should be well-organized, error-free, and easy to read. It should be tailored to the specific job and company to which the candidate is applying. It's a good idea to use action verbs and quantifiable data (e.g. "managed a team of 5 people," "increased sales by 15%") to make it more compelling.

It's important to note that there are different types of resumes like chronological, functional, and combination. Each of these types has its own format, and it's good to choose the one that is more suitable for your qualifications and experiences.



  • Use a clean and professional design: Avoid using too many colors or fonts, and make sure the design is easy on the eyes. A simple and well-organized layout will make your resume look more professional.

  • Use a clear and legible font: Use a font that is easy to read, such as Arial, Calibri, or Times New Roman. Make sure the font size is large enough to be easily read, but not so large that it takes up too much space.

  • Use bullet points and white space: Use bullet points to list your responsibilities and accomplishments, and use white space to separate sections and make the document easy to scan.

  • Use infographics and charts: Use infographics and charts to present your skills and qualifications in a visually appealing way.

  • Highlight your qualifications: Use bold and italic text to highlight your qualifications and experiences that are most relevant to the job.
