Resumes are a critical part of your self-promotion tool kit.

You will need a concise, relevant, and professional resume for a variety of reasons; including grad school, part-time employment, summer employment and future full time opportunities. 

There are a lot of different types of resumes, and you may see conflicting advice all over the internet. Whatever you do - be sure that your resume is tailored to the job you're applying for, that there's a targeted cover letter attached, and that you find the best way possible to highlight your skills.
