There is a chapter in the book Soft Skills: The software developer's life manual which says a resume is like an advertising brochure. The advertisement is trying to get a hiring manager to fork over $60,000, $80,000, or more to rent a software developer for a year. And most cases our resumes are not up to the mark as we are not professional resume writers.
