Let's Talk About Resumes


Hi Fabulous Working Females! This week I will be talking about resumes. Why are resumes so important? Well, think about it. The employer that you are applying to could be receiving dozens, maybe even hundreds, of resumes for a position. Your resume is your real first impression on whether or not they want to bring you in for an interview. Don’t be shy, now is your time to SHINE and put all of that fabulous-ness down on paper!

You want your resume to be clean, organized, easy to read, on one-page. Choosing a format first will help you envision what your resume will look like. Do your research on resume guides, and find a template that is right for you!
