Your resume should Be the First Impression
A resume closes the gap between you and the prospective recruiter. Therefore, to underestimate having a resume could be detriment. So, in order to make the first impression, it is imperative that your resume stands out from everyone that applies.
Many jobs, especially for higher-skilled positions, require that applicants submit a resume and a cover letter. Further, a resume is an opportunity for a prospect to see your experiences, skills and qualities that companies desire.
