A recipe for a great resume [infographic]


Crafting a resume is a challenge, especially if you’re tweaking it for each job you want. That being said, successful resumes often follow a certain formula…or in this case a recipe.

The folks over at GiraffeCVs put together this neat infographic on the recipe of a great resume (or CV for them as they are based in the United Kingdom). One point of contention might be the objective; outside of a few fields, an objective isn’t necessary and many are opting to include a professional summary instead.

That being said, there are some helpful tips in here. What do you think of this infographic?
