The most effective resumes are not mass produced but written for a single employer with a particular position or goal in mind.


A strong resume and cover letter combination may be your only chance to land an interview. Most recruiters take only 30-60 seconds to review resumes and decide if they wish to go further with that candidate. So, it is important to make your resume stand out!
