Why does a resume matter?

Because it is your first opportunity to show what is unique about YOU !

Because you are among probably hundreds and thousands of otherswith at least SOME similar characteristics, and

Because it may be the only thing holding the reader's attention long enough to prevent your chance of being selected from being tossed into the circular file.

While there is no one required format for a resume, the basic idea is that it should be organized, informational, and eye-catching enough to keep the reader interested.  We work with our students to create a resume to be included in their college applications.
