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
