Writing a Resume

Writing a resume can be a challenge, but it is necessary to perfect. There are a lot of components to remember when creating your resume.

First things first, make sure your name is in a big font at the top of your page. This is so employers remember your name and can easily recognize who’s resume they are reviewing. It is also important to put your address and contact information.

Second, you should list what college(s) you attended and your major. It’s important to put if your school is AASCB Accredited. If your GPA is above a 3.00, it is recommended that you include it on the resume. Also include if you were on the Deans List or not, and the year you graduated or anticipated graduation.

Third, you should list your Business related employment. It is wise underneath each job that you do not write your job “duties” but the skills you use at your job daily. Each bullet point should start with a verb as well. It is also important to get an Internship to add experience to your resume.

Fourth, make sure to list any volunteer experience. Having volunteer experience really sticks out on a resume.

Lastly, be sure to list all computer skills and social media. It is important for employers to see potential candidates being comfortable with the use of computers.

Some other things to note; try to manage spacing and do not have your resume longer than one page. Try to play with the margins to really make your resume stand out. It is also helpful to have a second pair of eyes look over your resume before turning it in.

Hopefully you find these tips helpful and you can score the job that you set your mind to.
