A professional resume should be able to serve its ultimate purpose of landing the interview. In short, after reviewing your resume, the hiring manager should at least be able to learn the 3 following information: "Is the candidate qualified for this job position (in terms of skills, knowledge, and experience) ?" "What can the candidate contribute to the company (based on previous work experience and achievements) ?" "How to contact the candidate?"
Resume is the summary of an applicant’s background, relevant experience and qualification. It usually comes in handy during job application and college application process (bachelor, master & PhD degrees). A good resume should clearly present the value and profession of a candidate on a limited length.
