What should a resume look like?

Outline Your Experience

A resume is an outline of your work and educational experience. It is not a long narrative, and should not be written like a letter. Your resume should highlight your most important or relevant work and personal skills and experience. The employer should be able to scan your resume and get a "snapshot" of who you are vocationally, and measure some level of professional success.
