The primary intention of a resume is to provide a summary of your skills, abilities and achievements. It’s as if itsyour personal advertisement.
Here are some resume essentials:
• Best place to display your personal details is in the header of your resume (include full name and contact details)
• Make sure that you include summary of your education and training history.
• Generally speaking it's best to start with your most recent job and work experience and go back from there.
