Before you write your resume, you need to understand your features and benefits from an employer perspective. Your product is you!
Knowing your product is great advice for a sales rep. Yet critical for a job seeker. A sales rep can say "I don't know the answer to that, but I'll find out and get back to you." You can't. Your resume is a starting point to knowing and selling your product (you), and yes, it is required. But no, the resume is not magic and no, the resume won't get you the job. Yet without a good resume, it could keep you from getting the job (or from getting the interview).
