Now that you know which position you want to apply for, it is important to create or update your resume.
This document (Word or PDF) is sent to employers to demonstrate your technical knowledge (IT or management, etc.), your professional experience, your studies and your related skills. It must be synthesized to be relevant and capture the attention, from start to finish.
