What is a resume?
Résumé means summary in French. It is curriculum vitae or CV but shorter. Some employers require you to have a resume to apply for a job. It describes about who you are, your background and skills. You must only write what is true in your resume without exaggerating words. Your resume should be brief, clear and concise with the last date the resume was modified.
