A resume is a one to two page marketing tool that highlights your education, skills/qualifications and experience. It is required for most application processes for internships and full-time positions. There are many resume styles and formats to choose from. The key is for it to be easy to skim, consistently formatted from top to bottom, error free and filled with information that is relevant to the position for which you are applying.
