I want everything to be similar to the resume guide I will upload my original resume and you change around with and make it look more professionalResume Guide
This handout serves as a guide for developing resumes. As you develop yours, answer three questions:
1. What do you want to communicate about yourself as a professional?
2. Who is your primary audience and what do they need to know about you?
3. How will they receive the resume (medium: paper, electronic, plain text, modified via an online
application system) and what do you need to do to make the most of the medium?
Use a professional
summary if you have

information such as marital status, age, weight, etc.
List “References” on a separate sheet using the same heading as your resume,
and the title “References.”
Resume Checklist
Employers spend less than a minute evaluating your resume. Catch their attention by tailoring your resume to
meet their needs. Here are some suggestions to help focus your edits. They address the issues of form,
function, feedback, and electronic resumes.
FORM deals with appearance.
Templates: Avoid resume wizards and resume software templates. They are difficult to edit and do not
allow you to present information in the most effective format.
Length: For college students and recent college graduates, use a one-page resume.
Font: Choose a basic, easy-to-read font such as Times New Roman, Arial or Helvetica in 10-14 point size.
Use black ink.
Paper: Use 8 ½” x 11” resume-quality paper in a light color such as white or off-white. Buy envelopes and
cover letter paper to match your resume.
Spacing: Margins of 0.7 to 1 inch and double-spacing between headings improves readability.
Layout: Use bullets, bold, capitalization, and underlining sparingly to call attention to the most important
information. Leave some white space to create an uncluttered look.
Format: Present information in reverse chronological order. Common headings include: Education,
Experience, Skills, Activities, and Community Service.
Professionalism: Eliminate all typos and misspellings by asking other people to proofread.
FUNCTION conveys an image of you that meets the readers’ needs.
Image: Decide what image you want your resume to communicate. Does it show that you are a leader, a
team player, an artist, an innovator, a salesperson, or something else?
Content: Select three core qualities that define you and are of importance to the position for which you are
applying. Make sure that your resume focuses on skills and accomplishments that reflect these core
Style: Start off sentences with action verbs to convey enthusiasm and achievement. Sample verbs
include: Advised, Analyzed, Assisted, Coordinated, Created, Developed, Evaluated, Guided, Handled,
Implemented, Increased, Led, Maintained, Managed, Organized, Performed, Planned, Presented,
Processed, Researched, Served, Sold, Taught, Trained, Wrote.
Avoid: Do not list your own web site if it includes personal information. Never reveal confidential personal
data such as social security, driver’s license or credit card numbers on a resume.
FEEDBACK allows others to offer ideas for strengthening your resume.
Sources: Consult Career Services, professors, family, friends, and professionals in your field.
Review: When you receive feedback, decide if the changes suggested are useful.
E-mail text resumes: If you copy the text of your resume into the body of an e-mail, use left-hand justified,
plain text format. Avoid using tabs, bullets, underlining, bold, and graphics.
E-mail attachment resumes: If you e-mail your resume as an attachment, use your name in the
document title. Some employers will not accept attachments because of the danger of viruses.
Online resumes: Follow the directions on the Web site where you are submitting a resume; directions for
online submissions vary considerably.
Scanned resumes: Use key word phrases relevant to the position, employer, and career field. Use
capitals, bullets and bold for emphasis. Avoid underlining, graphics, and italics.
