Note: This résumé is intended to be used for those applying to jobs within the United States. You know how you need to customize your résumé and cover letter towards the particular position and company you’re applying to? The same concept must be applied to the job market; different countries will expect certain information to be “standard” on your résumé (or CV in some cases). Do your research to ensure that you are meeting cultural requirements and disclosing appropriate and legal information.
