Additionally, resumes have changed drastically over the years and no longer can you expect to get a call back simply by listing out your qualifications and work history. Now, you must develop a story that expresses who you are and what you can bring to their business. This focus relies heavily on being able to clearly illustrate your strengths using past examples and tangible data.
