  • Will the content catch an employer's interest? 
  • Are your key skills and strengths highlighted? 
  • Is it an overall representation of your qualities?

  • Are keywords and phrases easy to identify? 
  • Will it be easy to read by a scanning system?

Is the resume complete and accurate?

  • Is it complete (all dates, contact information, etc. provided)?
