As I noted previously, the best way to approach your resume is to view it as creating a story. When you view it as a story, you can both craft it so you can easily convince people to hire you, but also it's just a lot more enjoyable.
Any good story has parts; introductions, beginning, endings, climaxes, etc. Your resume has its own components that tell your story. We'll look at these parts so you can get an idea of how to tweak them to tell the kind of story you want.
So, we'll take a look at the parts of your resume-story. I'll present them in the order I recommend they appear on the resume. Each has a specific purpose in telling your story.
