The Journey to a Tip-Top Professional Profile
How to Make the Most of Your Resume and LinkedIn
First... some feedback
What did you guys think of editing those resumes? What did it make you wonder?
Putting It All Together
Make sure the information lines up
Add recruiters on LinkedIn after you give them your resume
Hyperlink your profile!
Part One: Content
Mission Statement
MYTH:
Objectives are bad.
REALITY:
Add some personality to your resume: define your values!
Example: "I am a passionate social media strategist who believes humanizing digital content is key to driving results."
Experience
Myth: Employers want to know WHAT you've done.
REALITY:
Employers want to know WHY they should care.
Include stats, results, and key action words
Tailor for the job you want!
EXAMPLES
Education and Skills
MYTH: Education should go on the top of your resume with no GPA
REALITY:
Put it on towards the bottom (remember WHY they're communicating!), and include that GPA
Skills: Once again, tailor to the job, stick to hard or soft
EXAMPLE
Part Two: Style
Font
MYTH: Stick to classic fonts like Times New Roman
REALITY:
AVOID. TIMES. NEW. ROMAN.
Serif Fonts
Sans-Serif Fonts
Crimson Text
Aleo
Alegrya
Old Standard TT
Playfair Display
Libre Baskerville

Color
MYTH: Color is bad- avoid at all costs!
REALITY:
Color can add personality- just keep it professional and use it wisely
Layout
MYTH: Keep it traditional; one-inch margins, nothing fancy
REALITY:
Play around with layout- it helps your resume stand out.
Push those margins
9-12 font sizing
Add cool borders to make it easier to read
Designers- play even more when applicable
