Does Your Resume Undersell You?

A stand-out resume doesn’t require attractive fonts, clever formatting tricks, or stylized bullet points.

A resume that shows what you can bring to the table, however, will entice employers. To achieve that, professionals need to create a narrative in their resume that shows the full depth, context, and impact of their work.
