Resume Tips, Part 1: Good Resume makes you Successful
Resumes are important marketing tools which advertise the education, experience, skills and accomplishments you offer to a potential employer. They create an instant impression about you.
Terminology: In the business world, the word résumé, also spelled resumé and resume, is used especially in the United States, the Philippines and in English Canada. In North America, the terms "résumé" and "CV" may be used interchangeably. However, a résumé more often has a free-form organizational style and is used for seeking employment in the private sector, whereas a curriculum vitae (also called vita) usually has a more standardized look and format for the purpose of seeking positions in academic or educational institutions. Another difference is that a résumé tends to be more descriptive and tailored for a specific purpose or target audience, whereas a curriculum vitae tends to be organized in a way that presents data about one's self in a compact fashion, with a clear chronology.
