A resume also tells the interviewer about your academic background. It contains all your percentages and CGPAs in it. These are enough to define what educational experience you had in your school and college. It is an integral part of your resume as it helps in deciding the interviewer, whether the candidate is appropriate for the job or not.

Tells about your communication skills

Your resume also tells the interviewer how your communication skills are. The way you write various things there decides this ability of yours.

Other purposes of a resume

So, apart from the purposes mentioned above, a resume can be used for knowing the number of internships you have done, previous job roles and so on. This is also important to understand as these days it is counted as one of the added skills.
