Sure, first dates follow an abnormal and nerve-wracking social protocol. You wear the right clothes, you present your best self, and you laugh more (or less) than normal. You press for personal details, but you avoid creepy come-ons. Still, at the end of the day, the rules are simple. If you ever want to see that person again, put your best foot forward, and don't get naked.
Resumes follow the exact same rules.
