What Is a Resume?
By Cathy Pearl
  

1     A resume is a very important piece of paper. It can help you get a job. A resume lets you give a lot of information to an employer. This is more information than you can give in a letter. It helps give the employer a better idea of all the things that you can do.
 
2     A resume needs to have special information in it. The first is personal information. You should include your name, address, and telephone number. Many people now put in their e-mail address. They may also put in their cell phone number if they have one. Make sure you put in your area code with your phone number. If you are applying for a job in a different city or state, someone will need that number. This information usually goes at the top center of the resume.
 
3     You should also have a sentence that tells what your career goal is. Your goals should not be specific. It should be general so you may be considered for more than one job. An example of a goal is to become a master carpenter. You may then get a job as a helper or a trainee. It may take you a long time to reach this goal, but that is okay. It shows that you are working hard toward something.
