Resumes are rarely enthralling reads. In attempting to squeeze as much information as possible onto one page, people tend to end up with a dull, lifeless account of their career that would put most recruiters to sleep. But your resume doesn't have to read like an obituary. It only takes a bit of editing to bring life to a boring resume. The key is striking that balance between overly formal and too casual in order to create a resume that is polished, professional, and dynamic.
