A resume is an important tool in your search for employment. Internet advances have vastly altered the realm of job searching in a few short years. Technology has also changed the way job seekers write and transmit their resumes. Job seekers need to keep pace with the technology and hiring methods of today's employers, and their resumes must reflect the new recruiting practices and the ways employers identify and consider talent. The right resume will help you get the job, while the wrong resume will completely eliminate you from the competition.
