You’re looking for a new job. You have a degree, you have experience—you’re ready to put all of that together and show an employer just how great you are.

But what happens when you sit down with your resume and don’t know where to start? What if it feels like the whole thing is just one big mess of information? You can’t figure out where to start or what to do next.

Now, I’m not here to tell you that resumes don’t matter or that it’s okay to just wing it when creating your resume. But there are some things that make a huge difference in whether someone will notice your resume and consider giving you a chance at an interview. And even though there are tons of resources out there for learning how to write a great resume (like this guide), no matter how much research you do, there won’t be any guarantee that all of those tips will work for every person who reads them.

That’s why we created this guide: so that everyone who wants more visibility gets what they need from their resume so they can shine!
