Curriculum Vitae or simply Professional Resume is the first step towards your career life. Or more specifically this is the doorway of grabbing lots of opportunities out there. You might have an astounding educational background and experiences but a badly designed CV or resume will not only reduce the probability of the Companies HRs to pick from thousands of CVs they get every day but also might lead to bad impression of yours. No HR or designated employers in this world will check your CV or resume for more than 30-40 seconds. So as a candidate you need to put something in your CV that will grab their attention.
You can make a really good looking CV with all the images you can find, fill with heartfelt words and stay the rest of your life unemployed or you can make a very informative, short maximum 2 pages CV or resume that is still elegant enough to stand out from the crowd of hundreds CVs or resumes of the competitors. Your CV represent yourself, when the HRs or the company managers are checking the CV, you are not present there. So you need to put something in the CV or resume that attracts your employers, gives them exactly what they are looking for and proves that you are the one they are looking for.
