Résumé

For current students and recent graduates, the résumé is typically a one-page document that highlights educational background, experiences, accomplishments, skills, and interests. This length could vary depending on the industry and depth of your experiences, so knowing expectations within your field is critical for résumé success. Ultimately, your résumé is a guide and marketing tool about you and your abilities.
