Top-10 résumé tips
- Think ahead. If you wait until the last minute to hand in your résumé, you could miss the deadline and risk not being considered for the job.
- Tailor your résumé. Include information on your résumé associated with the job you are applying for.
- Chunk it out.If there is a lot of information, break it into separate sections with specific headings.
- Use action words. Focus on things you have accomplished, and avoid starting every sentence with “I”.
- Never rely on spell check.
- Repeat Tip 5.Seriously, even one misspelled word could put you in the “do not consider” pile.
- Make it presentable. Make sure your résumé looks clean and organized. Use white, letter-sized paper (8.5 x 11-inch) and a font that’s easy to read, like Times New Roman or Arial.
- Keep it concise. Try to keep your résumé as short as possible—ideally one page, two pages maximum.
- Be honest. Lying on your résumé is never a good idea. Many people who lie on their applications end up losing their jobs when their employers find out the truth.
- Be professional. Remember, this is a business document, so don’t include unnecessary embellishments like flashy paper or a picture of yourself
