​How to Build a Resume


A resume is an advertisement for you - Resumes are your first impression when job hunting.

Best Practices for resume writing:

  • No sentences; no periods

  • Bullets that line up neatly

  • Headings in order of importance

  • List work experience in reverse chronological order (from most recent to oldest experience)

  • Provide details about skills gained in point form

  • You should aim for your resume to fit on one page

  • Take some time to look at good and bad examples of resumes in class

  • Have at least one peer edit your resume before submitting it

  • Do not use a resume template because employers will recognize it and think you can't do your own resume

  • Do not allow any spelling mistakes

  • List the skills and qualifications that you think an employer would look for in hiring someone for the specific placement you want

  • Wish you could tell them more? That's what a cover letter is for!
