WRITE: Resumes & Professional Correspondence

Resumes

  • Your professional resume is a representation of you – a summary of your education, skills and experiences for your targeted audience.
  • A resume is a living document- is should change with you and your goals.
  • Generally, not longer than one page, until you have several years of professional experience.
Getting Started:
  • Start with a Basic Resume.
  • Once you have an industry, job or set of skills in mind to highlight, a Targeted Resume is best.
  • The Resume Guide (view as PDF) is a great place to start. Identify a sample resume that you like, and start drafting your own information into a Word document (avoid resume templates as they can be difficult to edit).
