How to prepare your Resume The purpose Identify what is important to focus on when preparing yours Resume. • A resume is an overview of your experience and credentials put together to sell your self • It is an introduction of yourself to the employer • A good resume will be easy to read, positive, and interesting.

• A resume is not a summary of what you have done • It should be focused on the job targeted, and the content relevant • Don’t develop a "one-size-fits-all" resume without tailoring it to the specifics of the job

communication and listening skills, ability to be a team player, goal orientation, analytical skills, motivation and initiative, reliability and dedication, determination, confidence, pride and integrity, efficiency, ability to follow directions

Things to remember • Make it easy to read • Recruiters approach resumes conservatively • Do not print resumes in color paper, in 3D, with unusual fonts, • Don’t include products the company's trying to sell. • Stay with what is tried and trusted • recruiters like the familiar standard formats.

• • • •

Use the font size 10-12. For a traditional look Use the Times New Roman or Arial Non-traditional fonts will look unprofessional When emailing them, your employer may not have the font type, your resume will end up unformatted • You can avoid this problem by emailing the document in PDF format.

• Avoid switching between too many fonts. • Use bold and italics to make important information stand out but use bold sparingly. • Also make use of white space, ensure there is enough to make it easier to read. • Use black and white. Color should be used restrictively and preferably not at all. • Keep the format neat and well organized consistently • If printing hard copies, use quality paper. • maintain the correct tense and grammar throughout the resume.

Decide on the positioning of the content. • A resume can be chronological (placed in date order) or functional (focused on specific professional skills). • The chronological resume is the more common, • Chronological resumes work well for people who have remained in the same profession and can demonstrate an evolving, improving history of experience. • For people who change jobs frequently, it can make you appear less reliable and knowledgeable. • The functional resume works best for frequent job changers, • Many resumes tend to be a combination of both approaches now.

Make a master list. • This list will be your background working document from which you create each new resume. • Education • Experience • Extra curricular activities • Positions held • Licenses and accreditations

Consider the resume content carefully • A resume should be brief. 1 to 2 pages in length at the most. • The standard is a page for every 10 years of experience is appropriate. • On average, a resume is given less than two minutes reading time, • Interview is the right place to share more information.

• List your scholastic accomplishments, official positions, student council memberships, awards, etc. • Provide your educational history. • Always list top accomplishments first, PhD, MA, BA, diploma, certificate. • List relevant scholarships and awards. • Include Job positions that were extensive. • Include accreditation and licenses.

• Include employment dates. (important) • Include an address, phone number, and email address. Don't use your current employer's name, number or email, • You may list references by names, because it's assumed by the recruiter that you have references.

Tailor your resume • Using your master list as a prompt, craft a resume targeted at your intended job. • Use the job advertisement, job description, media information, internet, newspaper, company's own press releases, speak to anyone you know who works in the place, etc

• list your experience in terms of accomplishments and achievements rather than tasks and responsibilities. • For example, "Cut expenses by 25 percent over six months. • Accomplishments that can be quantified can be helpful • Explain the relevance to the targeted job of the content placed in the resume.

Know what to watch out for • Don't make demands. • Don't inflate your achievements , qualifications and abilities. • Don't over-qualify yourself for the position. • Be careful not to be stubborn, arrogant, or difficult to work with.

• Avoid listing weaknesses. • You may mention the age, race, religion, gender, and national origin. • Forget the photo - The current trend is moving away from the inclusion of a photo • Avoid wasting space such as telling the employer you're available
