If you have never written a resume, the blank page you are facing can be very intimidating. While you can describe your job responsibilities to your friends, listing them out in a resume and showcasing how your experience to date meets your career objectives is a very difficult task.
A short testimonial embedded within your resume or cover letter used sparingly (1-3 max within a resume) will increase your chances massively. Obviously don't make them up yourself they may check them out!
Now, consider instead what happens if your resume is one of the 5% of resumes that achieves above average results. Assume it makes interviews happen not 5% of the time, but 50% of the time (a hit rate that is often achieved or exceeded). If you go job hunting with that resume and you apply for 10 jobs in your first week and your resume is only 50% effective in generating interviews, the odds are that you will have five interviews by the end of your third week (allowing a week between resume arrival and interview date), and at least one job offer from interviews 2 through 5. You might even get more than one job offer, which is a lovely piece of paper to have in your back pocket when negotiating the final details of your compensation package with your preferred employer.
