Need a Resume Boost? Use These Three Tips!

Your resume is your first impression so you have to make it a good one! Every so often it is important to update your resume. Here are three tips to boost your resume refresh! 

List Relevant Projects and Academic Courses

By the time you have reached junior year, you have taken a handful of classes that pertain to your major. Sometimes employers will not review your transcript so it’s a good idea to add the title of these courses to your resume. Be sure that the ones you list are relevant to your major or jobs you are applying for, and be sure to only pick a few, you don’t want to overwhelm the employer!

Be Job Specific 

No two potential internships or full-time jobs are the same, so neither should be the resume you submit for each! Although this may take a bit more time out of your day, you will reap the benefits in the end. This tip is praised on websites such as vault.com and careersdonewrite.com as one of the best ways to enhance your resume.

Add Your Study Abroad University

Education is one of the most important parts of a resume, it shows where you spent the past four years learning about your study. Nowadays most students spend a semester of their college career studying abroad in a foreign country. While this may just seem like opportunities to travel and have fun, it is actually seen as an advantage from an academic standpoint.
