Welcome to Module 14! In this module you are going to learn about resumes. A resume is a document that you use to apply for a job. Sometimes it is submitted with an application or it is submitted all on its own. Regardless of how you apply for the job, a resume is important because it is your chance to make a first impression to your potential employer.
There is no “right” way to create a resume, and everyone’s resumes will look and be different because we all have our own unique set of skills and ideas on how to present those skills. There are, however, guidelines and certain sections that should be included on a resume: Name, contact information, education, experience, and accomplishments.
