Use your resume to get the interview - not the job. Apart from the usual rules lets just concentrate on getting the interview. Imagine a prospective employer is looking at your current resume, how quickly are they going to get a clear idea about you? Your front page then becomes your 3 minutes in the lift! If you found yourself in a lift with three prospective employees what would you say? Who you are, what you do, what you have achieved and where you have been in the past may be a few good places to start. So, how do you cover this on your first page.
