Create a Rough Draft of your Resume

Your resume, combined with a cover letter, are the keys to opening the prospective employer's mind and door so that you can proceed to the next step in the process - an interview!
 
Some things you can check while developing your resume:

  • Includes name, address, phone and professional e-mail address
  • Does not include personal information (age, religion, etc.)
  • Does not include names of references or former supervisors
  • Is either one or two pages
  • Has a minimum 1 inch margin
  • Is prepared in chronological, functional, or combination format
  • Has perfect spelling and grammar and no typographical errors
  • Includes dates for education and experience sections
  • Use consistent formatting
  • Use professional looking font (no smaller than 11)
  • Most relevant information is closest to the top
  • Is tailored to reflect the type of work that I want
  • Objective focuses on what I can offer an employer
  • If using a Skill Summary section it highlights skills & experience
  • Describes experiences in bullet points using action verbs
