Applying for a job can be, and usually is, stressful. First, you have to find the right position, make sure that you meet (if not exceed) all the qualifications, and send in your resume. Employers look at resumes for an average of six seconds (yes, seconds!) so it’s important to make sure your resume is clear and digestible. Just hoping that someone will read it and think, "this is the person for us” unfortunately isn’t enough.
