Your Job Search – Resume Tips

Best Practices

  • Information on your resume should be relevant to the position that you are applying to.
  • Use proper grammar and make sure there are no spelling errors or typos.
  • Previous accomplishments should be in past tense and current work and activities should be in present tense.
  • Use terminology consistent in job postings; however, you should not copy the job posting.
  • Information on your resume should be presented in reverse chronological order. Your most recent experiences should be listed first.
  • Consider the company culture and behaviors when developing resumes and using infographics. Don’t overdo it.
  • If your information does not fit on one page, include a second page. If you’re using a second page, utilize the full space – but with meaningful information.
  • Have someone proof read your resume. Seek feedback from those that you trust.
