A complete resume contains the information required by employers to consider your job application. That is why it is so important that you provide as much details about yourself and your work in your resume to improve your chances of getting a positive response from employers.
You must complete your resume in order to apply for jobs.
You will also get more accurate job matches if your resume is complete, as the extra information in your resume will be used to match jobs to you more accurately.
All the information in your JobStreet.com account or My Resume section can be edited at any time.
