I found this resource very useful as it points out how important it is to write an accurate Résumé stating what are your most valuable skills for a given job.


I also found it very informative. I am British so am almost always asked for a C.V. I always thought resume was different: a much shorter, less formal document.

It is always advisable to attach a cover letter to your resume!
