Top-10 résumé tips  

  1. 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.
  2. Tailor your résumé. Include information on your résumé associated with the job you are applying for.
  3. Chunk it out.If there is a lot of information, break it into separate sections with specific headings.
  4. Use action words. Focus on things you have accomplished, and avoid starting every sentence with “I”.
  5. Never rely on spell check.
  6. Repeat Tip 5.Seriously, even one misspelled word could put you in the “do not consider” pile.
  7. 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.
  8. Keep it concise. Try to keep your résumé as short as possible—ideally one page, two pages maximum.
  9. 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.
  10. Be professional. Remember, this is a business document, so don’t include unnecessary embellishments like flashy paper or a picture of yourself
