Our How to Get Hired series exists to help you land your dream job. After you’ve wowed your potential employer with a quick-witted and impressive cold e-mail, the next thing they’ll take a look at is your resume. We’ve asked around the MTV and Much offices—the actual people who interview and hire our digital interns—for their Dos, Don’ts and Nevers of resume writing.
