You want your potential employer to see you for the organized, intelligent, hard-
working person you are, and you need to make that clear on paper. Here are some
tips for preparing a resume:
Ask yourself: What is the purpose of this resume?
Don’t use “I” statements.
Be consistent when aligning dates, formatting dates and when using
abbreviations (either abbreviate all or none – i.e. choose “August” or
Aug.”)
Use a professional email address (i.e. “name99@gmail.com”, NOT
“sexybaby99@hotmail.com”)
Keep it short — one page, if possible.
Be neat; print your resume on a quality desktop printer.
Be honest about your skills and work experience.
Include paid and non-paid work experience, including volunteer work and
internships.
Include honors and awards received.
If you run over one page, make your job descriptions more concise.
Adjust font size (slightly) and margins to make content ?t or increase
“white space” on page.
Be concise and use action words and phrases when describing your
experience.
Ask someone you trust to check over your resume before submitting it – it
should be error free!
Use the Resume
Workbook
to generate
contents if the
student is stuck.
