The job of the employer is to pour through, sometimes, hundreds of resumes every single day. They have a well-trained eye for scanning and for identifying the candidates which interest them most. All the same, they must also read through all kinds of really boring information.
Some resumes read like a long list of data which is anything like remarkable. Your resume, however, should not. Your resume should be formatted to give your prospective employer your most meaningful and interesting information first and then all of the pertinent, less exciting information, afterwards.
Your resume should pack a punch to begin with and then you boldly assert your best qualities and talents. Then, you should back up your assertions by proving you know your stuff. You will then show how qualified you are for the job, based on your work experience.
