About Traditional Resumes

Whether your career is in a conservative industry such as banking, finance or education, or a nontraditional sector such as entertainment or the arts, your resume should:

  • Quickly capture the hiring manager's attention
  • Detail the skills and qualifications you can bring to the job
  • Dovetail your past experience with the needs of the position you are seeking
  • Showcase accomplishments
  • Provide relevant academic data

A traditional resume effectively does all of that, while also being aesthetically pleasing.

Note: Traditional resume means the kind of resume that you'd send to employers by way of postal mail, fax or email file attachment*. Once you've written your traditional resume, to cover the gamut, you'd then convert it to modern-day scannable and electronic versions.

If that sounds complicated, you're not alone. Considering letting the certified, professional resume writers at ResumeEdge create all three versions for you.ResumeEdge Professional Resume Writing

* Never email your resume or cover letter as a file attachment without consent. Most computer-savvy employer reps won't open unsolicited file attachments, because they can harbor malicious computer viruses. Many companies have set up their email servers to automatically strip-off attachments for the same reason. In the absence of consent, send your resume and cover letter directly in the body of an email instead of attaching them. See Electronic Resumes for more information.
