Resume Tips

  • Focus on content.
  • Don’t worry too much about formatting or style.
  • Use a common font, with black type on a white background.
  • Organize with education first, and then work experience.
  • In the education section indicate your major, when you expect to graduate and your GPA (assuming it’s something to brag about).
  • Include specifics about the classes you’ve taken so a potential employer can better understand the subjects to which you’ve at least been introduced.
  • Include all jobs, no matter whether or not they seem relevant to the position you are seeking.
  • Keep to one page if possible but definitely no more than two.
