Suggested Resume Format
All resumes that we present to clients are in our standard InSync format. This format provides the information Ė clearly and consistently - that our clients want to see.
We prefer that you provide your resume to us in this format, as it ensures that all the relevant information is there and allows us to present your resume sooner.
The InSync resume sections are as follows:
