Importance of a Resume 

The purpose of your resume is to showcase your skills, qualifications, experience, and achievements that are relevant to the position you are targeting.

Think of your resume as a marketing tool to advertise why you are the perfect fit for a position, instead of an autobiography that merely narrates your entire work history. Your resume only has an average of up 6 seconds to spark the interest of Hiring Managers or Recruiters, so your messaging needs to be compelling, concise, and relevant.

A perfectly-crafted resume is accomplishment-driven, keyword optimised, grammatically flawless, pleasing to the eye, scannable for Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS), and the list could go on and on. Instead, we thought it would be more useful to simply provide you with our first-ever, downloadable DIY resume template (illustration shown below).
