Resume Tips

Crafting the perfect resume can make the difference between getting an interview or receiving an automated not interested email. Resumes are the first impression and first step in landing a new job. Your resume should be tailored to the industry you’re applying to. Certain industries may have a specific format preference. Following these steps can help you land the interview:

  1. Only include relevant experience. If you are applying for a teaching position, there is not a need to include your undergrad hosting jobs. Employers want to see that you have job specific skills.
  2. Summarize your experience in 1 to 3 bullet points.
  3. Limit your resume to two pages if you have a lot of experience.
  4. Include your memberships to professional organizations and volunteer work if it is relevant to your position.
  5. Check your spelling and grammar.
  6. Use easy to read fonts and keep color to a minimal.
  7. Use the job description to your advantage. Be sure to highlight skills they are looking for through your experience.
  8. Only include your college education. If you have a bachelor’s degree than you had to have gotten a high school education some where and no one really want to know where.
  9. High school does not matter.
  10. Internships is experience. Be sure to have that on your resume. The more experience you have the better.
  11. Tailor the resume to the job you’re applying for.
  12. Include a well-written cover letter with your submission.
