How to write a resume. This is one of the most frequently asked questions I get. The thing that you need to do is be very specific in what you're offering up on this resume, and it has to be very much targeted to the company you're applying for. You have one page of prime real estate to put your best self forward. You do not want to waste any space. It is not a throw everything up on the wall and hope something sticks. It's your job to make sure that you are matching your skills and experiences specifically to the company that you're applying for. It's your job to make this potential employer see the connection, see the perfect fit between you and the company, and you've got one page to do it. Make sure you're succinct. Use action words. Make sure that you're very much attached to outcome. Demonstrate what you've done in the past, using very action oriented kind of words. That's how you write a resume.
