"Goal: The goal of this tab is to demonstrate how to effectively market yourself through the use of a resume. It should demonstrate how to successfully communicate your assets when writing to an employer. The idea is to break down a resume into fragments and instruct prospective job seekers/students how to construct each portion.
How is this helpful? It is crucial that individuals understand not only the importance of having a resume, but how to successfully construct one. This skill is, perhaps, one of the most important skills to have. A resume is often the first impression you are making on a prospective employer. Understanding how to market yourself is vital. While building a resume is an art, not a science, tips and tools for success can be very helpful."
