Answer

Question:
To be considered by the top firms, your résumé must look professional.
Answer:

To be considered by the top firms, you must have a professional-looking résumé.

OR

You must have a professional-looking résumé to be considered by the top firms.

Note that the sentence Your résumé must look professional to be considered by the top firms still contains a dangling modifier. Placed at the end of the sentence, the phrase to be considered by the top firms still illogically modifies the noun résumé.
