A resume should begin with a header that includes the applicant's name and contact information. This is followed by a brief summary of his education and work history as it pertains to the job he is applying to. An optional objective statement may also be included in which the applicant briefly discusses his work goals and what he is trying to accomplish. The resume may also contain sections for skills and abilities relevant to the position.
