How Should I Format My Resume?
Content should dictate length of resume
If two pages, print on two pages - not front/back
- Include name and page number on 2nd page
- Do not staple
Activities and Involvement
Skills or Qualifications
Honors, Awards, or Achievements
Study Abroad Experience
Reference Section Example
William Smith, Associate Professor, Communications Studies Department, UW-La Crosse
Margaret Wilson, City Editor and Internship Supervisor, Minnetaska Times Gazette, Minnetaska, MN
Terri Smith, Women’s Track Coach, UW-La Crosse
...check references - correct number, email, titles?
After: Create a plain text resume that can be copy/pasted (you'll use this for some online applications)
Don't forget to...
...make sure you can expand upon everything you've included
...contact references - provide them with your resume, ask if they will serve
To see additional resume writing tips & examples, plus a self critique check list go to:
Log into Eagle Opportunities for job and internship listings
Contact Josh Bench for resume/cover letter critiques and other career help
3-5 who recommend (talk to them 1st!)
Appropriate references are: professional, academic, involvement or work-related
Not directly related, so lower in resume
Start with most recent
Don't describe obvious tasks
Divide into multiple sections
Volunteer/class projects/study abroad
Briefly describe relevant experience
What's in a Bullet?
It's not only about what you did, but...
How you performed your duties and/or
Why the task was important and/or
The impact of your work
List 3 skills or strengths you want to highlight, using the job posting as a guide for what's relevant (e.g., writing, leadership, attention to detail).
• What are 2-3 experiences that demonstrate each skill (think broadly: classes, volunteer positions, campus involvement, internships, jobs... Sports are fair game too)?
• What did you do in each of the experiences? How did you use the skill?
Simple bullet points
