A resume is the one document that can either get you an interview or leave you out of one. It is important that employers can easily obtain relevant and concise information, but with specific details. Below are some general tips and examples:
Items to include:
Header with your name, address, email (must be a professional email address), phone number, and personalized LinkedIn URL
Section headers such as: Experience, Volunteer Work, Leadership Roles, Honors and Distinctions, etc.
Targeted bullet points (each starting with various action verbs) describing your accomplishments, as relates to the job description for the job you are applying for
1/2 or 1 inch margins on all sides
Professional style font (Times New Roman, Calibri, Helvetica, etc.)
One page (unless you have two full pages of relevant information – Various Action Verbs)
