Shaping Your Resume
Your resume is an online representation of your skills and experience. Here are some tips for creating a successful resume that can go to work for you.
 
 
Put your information at the top
 • Make sure your contact information is up to date and easily distinguishable.
 • Put every method that employers can reach you about interviews with at the top.
 • Add your LinkedIn web address to your contact info
 
 
Start with a Summary
 • Start with a Brief paragraph or bullet-ed list presenting you as a worker.
 • Keep it short but include your strongest skills and why you are the right candidate for the position.
 • This is what recruiters and hiring managers see first.  
 
 
Everything Bullets
 • When listing your skill set and work experience, keep it short and concise.
 • Use bullet-ed lists instead of long sentences.
 • Incorporate keywords from the job listing into your description of your skills.
 • List the higher priority skills and experiences on top.
 • Start each bullet point with an action verb. This helps make your resume more interesting.
 • Make sure that all bullets and sub bullets are consistent through out your resume. 
 
 
Quantifying Your Experience!
 • Employers will be looking for quantifiable statistics to show your success.
 • Highlight the impact of your accomplishments by showcasing the data/stats behind each action.
 
 
Education
 • Add your education after work experience - make sure to list the years you were enrolled.
 • You can list the coursework you have done that is relevant to the job.
