The Perfect Resume

"There’s really no secret tip for providing the perfect resume. So many people will tell you, 'If such-and-such is on there, then the employer will trash it!' and then another person will say, 'If same-such-and-such isn’t on there, then the employer will trash it!'"

What goes into a resume that leads to a job? Well--as the above quote from the MakeUseOf blog suggests, there is no guaranteed formula. There are, however, some common-sense basics about what to include, and what not to include. 

One thing the above-linked article doesn't mention: customization. Tweak your resume for each job you apply to. Highlight the stuff that fits the job. It's not a prospective employer's job to sift through irrelevant details to figure out why you're a perfect match for his or her needs.
