Career Toolkit Series: Week 1: RESUME TIPS


Resume Tips:

  • Highlight your internships that are relevant to an industry of interest.
  • If you’ve gained knowledge from a class you’re enrolled in, or completed, and it’s relevant to the job you’re applying for, list and describe the class
  • Unpaid internships and jobs that helped you strengthen or develop new skills, should be listed
  • Be results oriented on your resume.
  • If you increased sales, don’t hold back telling the story; share that percentage!
  • Review your resume, and then review it again!
  • Share your resume with others to review
  • After submitting your resume, remember to put the name of the company on your Excel spreadsheet and the date that you submitted your resume
