A resume is an extremely important document that is used by a person while applying for a job or an internship, in school or for educational purpose. A resume lists down various details about a candidate, his name and his contact details, his educational qualifications and previous job experience, his strengths, weakness and the languages he is proficient in. A good resume format should be short and to the point so that the employers know about you the very moment they go through the resume. It should not be extensive with too much of detailing or it becomes boring. There are different resume formats for new joinees, experienced people and different job profiles.
