I'm willing to bet we've all heard a few hard-and-fast rules when it comes to creating a resume.

Keep it to one page, for instance — or No need to include a summary or objective on your resume.

Zety — a resume builder and a career blog — analyzed 133,000 real-life job applications created in their resume builder to compile this comprehensive resume analysis.

Which is likely exactly what job seekers need in these trying times.
