Resume Checklist

To make the most out of your co-op drop-in session, we advise you to come prepared with a sample job posting and an updated hard copy of your resume following the resume checklist below.

ESSENTIALS 

Resume is updated as per the feedback, guidelines and information provided in the Resume & Cover Letter workshop attended and covers the following major resume components and sections:

  • Professional Contact Information
  • Objective or Profile Summary
  • Education
  • Technical Skills
  • Related Projects
  • Work Experience
  • Extracurricular Activities and/or Volunteer Experience
  • Other (i.e. Achievements, Professional Development, etc.)
    • All information is in reverse chronological order
    • Error free in terms of spelling, grammar or typos; appropriate tense is used consistently throughout i.e. past tense is used for past experiences 
    • Resume is not used in first person or complete sentences but rather in point form

QUALITY & IMPACT

  •  Resume is customized and targeted to the job requirements for every posting being applied to
  • Content should include action statements, accomplishments and added value instead of responsibility and duty statements

i.e. formula of description statements: Action verb + description of accountability + value-add/purpose/result of action

  • Quantifiable descriptions are used where possible

i.e. Facilitated a dynamic 2 hour presentation for audience of 150…

VISUAL PRESENTATION & PROFESSIONALISM

  • Resume appears well-organized, readable and easy on the eye

i.e. there is enough white space without it looking too sparse or crammed

  • All fonts (type and size) are consistent, easy to read and professional in appearance
