How to Create a Unique and Professional Resume
A resume is a summary of your achievements and employment experiences. It is a marketing tool to portray your talents and sell your future employer on the benefits that you will bring to the organization.
Are you lost or confused with your resume? Have you never had a job before?
What Font Do I Pick?
Preparing the Resume
Some things to Remember
Employers are looking for a track record of achievement so you MUST distinguish yourself from those who may have had the same assigned job responsibilities as you did but performed poorly.
If your work experience is minimal, consider a skills resume in which you emphasize your particular abilities such as organizing, programming, or leadership skills.
The font you choose can communicate a lot about your professionalism and your intentions.
eg. If you are an accountant you probably want to stick to a conventional font. On the other hand, if you are a graphic designer you can be a little more adventurous in your font.
Something to Keep in Mind
Where To Start:
Pick a font type and size to use for your resume.
Determine the format (Bullets, bold/underlined).
How to organize your resume with columns
What information is relevant

Special abilities and interests
Tailor your resume to the job
for which you are applying.

When stating your name at the top of the resume, you can use a font size of 16-18 and bolded.
For contact information you can use a font size of 14 and not bolded.
For heading sections, you can choose to bold/underline the heading and use a font size of 14.
