A good résumé is a critical tool for use in pursuing your career goals. To create an effective résumé, the Career Resource Center offers résumé workshops and an online résumé writing guide, as well as books and guides in our office library.
The Career Resource Center has developed an informational guide on résumé preparation based on the feedback we have received from recruiters over the years.
Use this list of action verbs to develop your résumé's bulleted statements.
Use as a guide to determine if your résumé fulfills the expectations of a hiring manager. The CRC uses this matrix to evaluate résumé format and content.
How do you create an email résumé that will win interviews and influence recruiters? To get started, follow these rules.
Follow guidelines for preparing a “scannable” e-résumé (this section is featured in the CRC Résumé Writing Guide).
In addition to the Web resources above, we encourage current students to take advantage of the following:
Drop-off your résumé and cover letter in 308 Alfiero for critique. Students are then able to pick up written feedback or schedule an individual appointment with one of our Career Advisors to discuss the suggestions.
Use our national employer directories, career guides and other library resources to help you in your job search.
These tools will help you become aware of the important features of an American-style résumé. Based on years of feedback from corporate recruiters, we will show you what to include as well as what not to include. We will also demonstrate how to make the most of your experience.
