Resume Tips

The goal of the resume and cover letter are to get you an interview

 

Be Specific. Employers want to know exactly what you accomplished. Be specific about your professional history and remember to highlight your accomplishments, awards and accolades.


Include Relevant Volunteer Work. If you have had a significant volunteer role or made other unpaid efforts towards professional development, include them on your resume.


Resume Language. Use the language of the job posting in your resume to appear qualified for the position.


No Graphics. Many companies put their resumes through software to screen resumes. This software does not respond well to graphics, therefore, making your resume harder to read.


No More Than Two Pages. There is no law about the ideal length of a resume, but the standard is two pages.


Use PDF Formatting. Saving and sending your resume as a PDF ensures that the employer is reading your resume the way you intended.


Proof Read Your Resume. Avoid typographical and grammatical errors; bad grammar can create an undesirable first impression.


Verify Your Contact Information. If an employer is unable to contact you because of a bad number or misspelled email address, you will have missed an opportunity. Verify that your methods of contact are correct.
