strong and positive as possible. With your resume before
them, employers can visualize how you will operate within
the framework of their corporation, and how your skills
and abilities will be utilized in the future development
of the company.
Your Employment Summary
Although the Avjobs Resume Builder will automatically sort
your previous positions by date, you should start with your
most recent employer, and then continue in descending order.
When entering your current position (present employer, student,
or military), the date fields may be left blank and the
system will automatically default this information to be
your present position.
Only list unemployed periods that were longer than 30 day.
You'll be more likely to impress an employer if you can
show that you used the time between jobs to acquire new
skills or additional qualifications.
