Writing a Resume

What is a Resume?
?

Advertisement of your:
? ?

?

Abilities Accomplishments Capabilities

?

Should

make employer want to meet you Should be honest, concise & easy to read

?

Resume Format
?

Chronological resume is most common
?

Arrange items in reverse chronological order

?

New college graduates should:
? ?

List educational background first Then describe work experiences

?

Don’t just outline your background & qualifications
?

?

Describe what you did that was important Give employers thorough overview of your qualifications

Resume Contents
?

Almost all resumes have the following sections: Objective Educational Background Work Experiences Honors & Activities Skills Statement about References

Objective
?

First major section of your resume
It communicates two things:
? ?

?

What sort of job you are seeking What skills you have to offer

?

Your objective may be oriented to:
?

The position
?

?

The field
?

“Seeking a position as a social worker for the elderly.”
“Desire a social service position working with youth.” “Looking for a position utilizing my counseling & writing skills.” “Seeking a position as a public relations officer in a medical facility. Wish to utilize my skills in communications & photography.”

?

Your skills
?

?

A combination of the above
?

Objectives: Additional Considerations
?

Be work-centered rather than self-centered
? ?

Focus on what you have to offer, not what you want Avoid objectives that sound like this:
?

“Seeking an entry-level position which will offer plentiful opportunities for professional training & career advancement”

?

Be as specific as possible
?
?

If you know the position you want, state it clearly

“Applying for the entry-level accountant position advertised in China Daily”

?

Do not state a career goal for which you are unqualified
?

Must reflect a goal you can do with your present skills & qualifications

?

Do not use such trite expressions as:
? ?

“Seeking a challenging entry-level position” “Looking for an opportunity to advance quickly into management”

Education
?

List your:
? ? ? ?

?
?

University’s name Dates you attended the school Degrees (If you already have graduated) Major(s) Minor(s) Additional courses not covered by your Major or Minor
?

Do so only if it will help you get the position you want

?

Highlight any strong educational achievements
? ? ?

GPA Membership in honorary societies Dean’s List citations

List in outline format:
?

Position held

?

?

?

?

Honors & Activities
?

List:
? ? ? ?

? ?

?

Remember that whatever you list must show that you are suited for the job for which you are applying

?

Volunteer experiences

Skills
?

List things such as:
?

Language skills

Never exceed two pages
?

If two pages, it must be two full pages
