“Be a Person. Not a Resumé.”
― Sharad Vivek Sagar
One of the most important documents that you will ever need is your CV or how the cool kids will say “Resume”. To give a quick definition of what it is, its basically a summary of your life and achievements that depict what your career history. But when I say important this is the first interaction that your future employer would get to know you.
