  20. 20. Text Poll #FCconnect
  21. 21. Résumés #1: The Objective Leave it off unless you’re applying for an internship. Why: It’s too general – use the space for more important information. #FCconnect
  22. 22. Résumés #2: Contact Information Use a professional email address. Why: Recruiters might find “studmuffin2011” or “honey_booboo_child91” humorous, but it doesn’t convey professionalism. #FCconnect
  23. 23. Résumés #3: Results Quantify your results – don’t just list job responsibilities or duties. Why: Recruiters and hiring managers want to see what you’ve accomplished.
  24. 24. Résumés #4: Formatting Make it easy to read. Google standard résumé formats and tweak as needed. Why: You have an average of 6-10 seconds before a recruiter moves on to the next resume. The easier to read, the more they get through. #FCconnect
  25. 25. Résumés #4.1: Formatting BONUS TIP: The Enactus Career Marketplace has 37 different templates for different industries and functions for you to use! When you log in to the Career Marketplace, select “Resume Builder” at the top of your screen. #FCconnect
  26. 26. Résumés #5: Length One page, relevant experience. Why: 99% of recruiters agree that if a person has under 10 years of relevant experience, the résumé should be kept to one page. #FCconnect
  27. 27. BONUS: Career FairsBring your résumés & business cards with contactinformation (major, expected graduation date, etc.)Why: Not every company can accept a résumé at the careerfair. Many require online applications. Apply online, thenleave your business card with the recruiter as a follow upmeasure. #FCconnect
  28. 28. Interview Tips #1: Research Know what the company does, some of their brands, and their culture. Don’t ask a question that can be answered on their website or via Google. Why: Show that you’re prepared. Do the homework – it will pay off. #FCconnect
  29. 29. Interview Tips #2: Practice Set up mock interviews with an advisor, career services, friends or family. Why: Practice makes perfect. You’ll feel more confident if you have been through the process before. #FCconnect
  30. 30. Interview Tips #3: Research Prepare for behavioral interviewing using the STAR method. (Situation, Task, Action, Result) Why: The majority of companies use this method. It’s more about how you reacted to real-life situations. #FCconnect
  31. 31. Interview Tips #4: Dress for Success Dress for where you want to be, not where you are today. Why: First impressions matter. If you have to think “is this appropriate,” it probably isn’t. BONUS TIP: An iron can make a BIG difference. #FCconnect
  32. 32. Interview Tips #5: Follow Up Send a handwritten thank you note. Ask what the next steps are before you leave the interview. Why: Most candidates simply don’t follow up. Set yourself apart and make a positive impression. You’ll stand out. #FCconnect
  33. 33. Interview Tips BONUS: First Impressions Be courteous from the first interaction (phone call, career fair, email, etc.) Why: Hiring managers often ask the receptionist, secretary, even the custodian about their impression of you. Bring your “A” game. #FCconnect
