Regardless of what all the things on the internet say, there’s no such thing as a perfect resume. The ideal resume for each industry will look a little different, but in order to increase your chances of landing the right job, there are certain things that a good resume should include. The “perfect” resume will have all of the information that your potential employer is looking for (think contact information, education, employment history, certifications, and so on), and it will be attractively formatted without being overwhelming or confusing. Using a nice font if you are putting your resume on social media can be beneficial, too. Avoid Times New Roman, and go with something a bit nicer like Georgia or Arial. These are more pleasing on the eye. If you can, try to make it interactive with links.
