Resume Tips

Having a good resume is an important part of landing the right job! Here are some tips we’ve compiled from our experience:

  • Use action words such as “created”, “managed”, “initiated.”
  • Be sure to proofread your resume carefully for spelling and grammatical errors.
  • Don’t use the first person singular (“I” or “me”).
  • Where possible, state how the results of your accomplishments benefited your department or company.
  • Quantify as much as possible: how many dollars you saved the company, how many people you managed, etc.
  • Emphasize your experience and skills that are relevant to the position you are looking for.
  • Highlight your most important responsibilities, even if they weren’t your primary job responsibilities.
  • List the most relevant and important points first; don’t make the reader wade through half your resume before coming across your most impressive skills.
  • Gear your resume towards the position you are looking for.
  • Your resume should be clear and concise.
  • Include your dates of employment.
  • Be truthful as to your skills and experience; you can expect to have both assessed aside from your resume claims.
