Many people think that the purpose of a resume is to get them a job. This is not entirely correct. Your resume provides a summary of your experiences, abilities, skills, as well as accomplishments. Whether you have a paper version or an electronic version, your resume is a tool for you to sell yourself to your prospective employers. If your resume is done correctly, you will get an interview. If you are having trouble being considered for one, then there may be something wrong with your resume.
