  • 8. Student Résumé – Assignment #3 Assigned Week 5Your résumé should always be tailored to the specific position and group/company to which you are applying. Inaddition, you should consider that some education, experiences, and recognitions may be more important for oneposition than another.Above all, it is vital that you are honest in the information that you share on a résumé. Using descriptive language toexplain roles and responsibilities is encouraged; embellishing or lying about experience that you do not possess will notpresent you in a positive light.EducationWhat is your major? If you have a minor, list it here:What is your current GPA? When do you expect to graduate (Month/Year)?Work ExperienceNot everyone will have work experience; if you do have prior work experience or have a current job on campus, youshould list it on your résumé. It is also helpful to keep a list of past employers with addresses, dates of employment, andphone numbers, as many applications will ask for detailed information in order to check the information that you haveprovided in your résumé.Employer: Address:Dates of Employment: Phone Number:Description of Duties:You can also use this format for past internships; it is vital to provide an honest and succinct description of your rolesand responsibilities. You should list this information for every past job; however, once you have more life/workexperience, most employers will only expect a history of 7-10 years, depending upon the relevance of past employment.Community Service and ActivitiesOften, community service and civic engagement opportunities provide excellent experience that demonstrates key skillsto prospective employers. If you are a regular volunteer with a specific organization or you are part of a group thatregularly interacts with the community in planning and presenting events, that information should be part of yourrésumé. You should also list any campus activities and roles that demonstrate your skills and abilities.Name of organization/event: Date(s) of service:Description of service/event:Finally, consider any references that you may have. References are people with whom a prospective employer can speakregarding your employment history, your work ethic, your willingness to learn new tasks, and your overall demeanor in apersonal or professional environment. References may be past employers, instructors, or community servicesupervisors. Always ask before listing someone as a reference; not asking is considered extremely unprofessional. Youmay consider keeping references on a page separate from your résumé, depending upon the situation.ASC 1000 Name: __________________________________ Due Week 6
