Having a job referral or hot job lead is not enough to get you employed. You need to have the skills to present yourself in the best possible light in order to successfully compete with other applicants. A great resume is a must for any applicant. It is what the employer uses to screen applicants and determine who they will invite to an interview. It is not unusual for a business to receive resumes from dozens or even hundreds of applicants for one position, but only invite six to eight of them for an interview. No matter what your qualifications for the job are, they need to be highlighted on a professional resume in a way that will stand out to the reader.
