Résumés

First impressions can make a lasting impact on a potential employer. Your résumé is the first impression an employer will have of you. Employers and recruiters spend anywhere from 6-30 seconds on their initial viewing of your resume. This is why it is critical to have a good résumé that is updated regularly. It is imperative to customize your resume for each position you are applying. By doing so, you are showing your potential employer that you understand what the job requirements are and you are willing to go the extra mile to ensure the job is done to the fullest extent.
