A résumé is a powerful document that showcases your persona, your talent, your capabilities and your achievements. It is a sacrosanct document that should be treated with respect. Quintessentially it is YOU in all respects. Reading your résumé should give the reader the impression that he has known you all along and that you are in front of him.
