You may have several different versions of your résumé depending upon the positions for which you are applying. • Begin writing your résumé early to allow the opportunity to recognize areas you wish to strengthen and gain experience. You will also have the freedom to write, re-write and polish your résumé by planning ahead. Your résumé is the first impression you make on an employer and is the key to gaining an interview. Helpful Hints: • Limit your résumé to one or two pages for most fields. Remember, a résumé is NOT a work history. It is an example of your ability to communicate. Include only relevant and targeted information. • Do NOT write your résumé in first person. The words I, me, or my are not appropriate. • A résumé is a factual, historical and objective account of your experience and achievements. Your résumé should be accurate, honest, organized and easy to read. • Utilize a concise and specific objective. Avoid long, wordy and ambiguous statements. • Create a letterhead at the top of your résumé and include your name, full address and phone number. This "look" can be used on all of your professional documents. • Bulleted action verb statements can be used when describing your skills, accomplishments and responsibilities. This technique adds energy, which invites the employer to want to read down the page. • Do not include any reference materials in your résumé. Your professional references should be listed on a separate sheet. • Always include a cover letter when mailing your résumé to a prospective employer.
