      "As an older individual, I recognize that creating a resume that will get you noticed is different today from when I first needed one. This site provides information to an app that walks me through the process and each category that I might want to include on my resume. I like that there are options to put your information into different resume formats, although I am not sure which format is considered "standard". I look forward to trying this app and see how my resume might look in modern times versus what I had learned so many years ago."

The app contained a lot of information which was useful, but it seemed to clog up the screen a bit and make it difficult to read at times. Overall I found the app useful."

      "This app makes the process of building a resume a breeze! Simply put in your information and it compiles it in a perfectly professional format. It's fully customization, so you aren't stuck with any categories that you deem unnecessary. Nobody likes writing up a resume, get Resume Star and simplify the process."

    WHAT’S THE MEANING?

    A résumé, also spelled as resume, is a document used by an individual to present and summarize their backgrounds and acquired skills.

    DID YOU KNOW?

    Did you know that it was the historical figure Leonardo da Vinci who is being credited for the first-ever résumé? Da Vinci’s résumé, however, takes the form of a letter written and sent to Ludovico Sforza circa 1482 whilst trying to find work in the city of Milan, wherein Sforza was the Duke of. Nowadays, résumés are still being used the same way, albeit with a few changes. Despite this, the goal still stays the same: to advertise one’s self, oftentimes made by individuals seeking a new place of employment as a means to let their target workplace know how much knowledge they possess in a specific field.

    A study from TheLadders has shown that it only takes a recruiter or an employer 6 seconds to review an individual résumé. In essence, it can be considered as the first impression a potential manager may have of you. That being said, the presentation of a résumé is essential as it can either make or break your chances of landing the job you so desperately seek. With plenty of sites and services where you can create or download résumé templates from, along with a wide array of tools and applications to assist you in this endeavor, impressing that seemingly-intimidating interviewer from the office won’t be that challenging anymore.

Your resume can be very similar as far as style but you will always want to change verbiage to cater to the job applying for. Always look at samples of jobs you are applying for."
