what is a resume?

A resume is a brief document that summarizes your education, employment history, experiences and involvement that are relevant to your qualifications for a particular job for which you are applying. The purpose of a resume (along with your cover letter) is to get an interview. 

A recent BusinessInsider report revealed that the average hiring manager spends approximately 6 seconds looking ar your resume. It is therefore crucial that your resume stands out from the rest.

The four main sections of a resume are:
Contact Information
Honors, activities and community involvement

The resume might also include:
Career Objective
Coursework (if an underclassman)
Computer Skills (both hardware and software)
