Your résumé or application is usually the first impression you make on an employer. Because it’s used to determine whether or not an employer will interview you, you should take great care in putting together your résumé. It should clearly state your skills and experience. It should also be easy to read and easy to scan.
How you organize your résumé is extremely important. When an employer needs a specific piece of information, it should be easy to find. A common format that works well:
