Tips for your resume

I stumbled across these tips today while cleaning my office and I thought they might be helpful to some of you.

What a resume does:
  • Provides a snapshot of who you are
  • Creates an impression of your strengths and core competencies
  • Helps your potential employer understand who you are
  • Tip for your resume:
  • List experience before education
  • Entries should generally be chronological
  • Use active verbs
  • Be consistent in grammar and punctuation
  • Make yourself look good by making your resume visually appealing
  • List degrees/majors before the institution
  • List job titles before company and location
  • Consider leaving out older, unrelated experience
  • Be truthful and factual
