Most employers will not look past the first page if you are an undergrad
This is a SNAPSHOT of your recent professional experience, affiliations and achievements; NOT A NARITIVE
If it makes you look good then stick it in your resume
KEEP IT UNIFORM AND EASY TO READ AND FOLLOW
Your Personal Information Example 1: Example 2 Example 3: Sometimes if you don’t feel like giving your address you don’t have to. Initially a contact phone number and email address is sufficient. YOU GOT TO HAVE A PROFESSIONAL/NON OFFENSIVE EMAIL ADDRESS
Education Basic: Say you do a lot: Another Example:
Listing GPA and most important educational achievements: Listing other honors is you have enough for a whole new section: IF YOUR GOING TO USE BULLET POINTS… HAVE AT LEAST 3
Relevant Coursework If you don’t have work experience: If you have many courses: If you want to be more specific with your classes or projects: THIS IS ONLY A TEMPORARY SUBSTITUTE FOR WORK EXPERIENCE BUT YOU SHOULD STILL FIND SOME WORK EXPERIENCE BECAUSE YOU CANT REALLY REPALCE IT!
List your highlights and other unique things about what you did.
If you can talk about dollar amounts put it in because $$$ equal responsibility
Example: “responsible for $70,000 in sales a week”
Don’t use the same adjective twice if you can help it. Use the synonym function on Word If there are acronyms spell it out. Utilize numbers to tell the magnitude of things you did.
This is an example of how you might present your progress over the years with one company Please note that verbs are not used more than once and that the descriptions are ranked by importance or relevance
These are some sections you may add to your resume in the case you have had some experience and have more than a “snapshot” of information In some cases if there is something exceptional outside normal responsibilities you wish to highlight you could have a subsection commonly called ‘Notable Achievements” where you can list them
