It takes more than just a resume!
This article states that yes, it is important for your resume to address anything and everything your employer will want to know. However, there is much more than a resume that will indiciate if you are the right person for the job. For example, your resume may say you were a server at job and what your duties were, but it doesn't say whether or not you handled your job well or if you communicated with others well. A resume also doesn't show the attidtude of the job seeker. The attitude of someone can only be concluded after a face to face meeting, not through a piece of paper such as a resume. Another reason a job requires more than a resume is because it is not easy to address everything you need to say, such as your leadership skills and how you have been a leader in your past careers. There are many reasons why interviews are so important in getting a job. The main reason is because the resume simply does not cover everything that the employer may need to know in order to hire the right employee for the job.
