Start with the most recent.Technology Summary: List only the technologies you know well.

    23. 23. Make Your Resume ViewableRecruiters and hiring managers like to search and "source" for candidates. Job portals,LinkedIn
    24. 24. DRESS FOR SUCCESSTake time to be well-groomed, have neatly trimmed hair, moderate makeup, be well-groomed and clean.Dress in business attireLook professional. You are more likely to be heard in the interview and employers will be more likely to assume you can perform the job.
