Wagner Career Services Resume Guide

A resume is a summary of your education, professional experience, and technical skills that are directly related or “relevant” to a specific position for which you are applying.

In combination with a well-crafted cover letter, a resume is a marketing tool designed to persuade an employer that you possess the skills and qualifications to warrant further consideration—via an interview—for a given position. While a strong resume will help you to leave a positive, lasting impression on an employer, a poorly constructed resume will undoubtedly be used to screen you out of the selection process. With so much at stake, your resume should be nothing less than impeccable.
