Версия страницы для печати

Your task is to put all this information into a clear, understandable format for your reader. Resumes for undergraduate students will usually fill one page, and resumes for graduate students or alumni with substantive experience may fill one to two pages. All resumes should have reasonable margins (approximately .75 to 1 inch), readable font sizes and styles, and clear headings and white space to separate sections. Make it easy on your reader's eye by avoiding large blocks of text and by using various styles to consistently highlight sections.

To create a scannable resume, use bold, capitalization, and indentation for emphasis; underlining and italics may make your resume unreadable by a scanner. Include keywords that employers might search by to identify candidates. For example, a resume for a software development job in a team might include some of the following words: "programming languages," "coding," "Visual Basic," "C++," "teamwork," etc. Use a sans serif font, such as Helvetica, and stick to font sizes between 10 and 14 points.
There are three basic formats for resumes: chronological, functional, and combination.

 

Chronological:

  • Information listed in reverse chronological order.
  • Stresses progression of where and how you developed your skills and education, and most recent experience listed.
  • Most effective for people with steady work history and those seeking work in traditional or conservative fields.
  • Least effective for those with spotty work history and people who have changed positions frequently.

 

Functional:

  • Information categorized by function.
  • Stresses skills and abilities regardless of where and how they were developed.
  • Most effective for career changers and people with diverse, unrelated experiences.
  • Least effective where accomplishments are unclear or for people with a lack of relevant work experience.

 

Combination:

  • Blend of other two formats; information listed by function and in reverse chronological order.
  • Stresses both skills and abilities and where they were developed.
  • Most effective for emphasizing skills not used recently and with frequent temporary or contract work.
  • Least effective for people with a lack of relevant work experience or where accomplishments are unclear.

 

Analyze your work experience to choose which format will best highlight your strengths and abilities.  For most college students, a chronological or combination resume will work well. On all resumes regardless of format, list your most important sections first.

Use active verbs to describe your work experience and activities. They make a difference in helping employers understand your skills and what you could offer. Consider the following description of a student's summer internship with IBM: "Helped to develop tracking system for the Department of Health and Human Services."

The reader has a very general idea of what the stuck worked on, but no real information as to what duties the student actually performed. This phrase could be made much more effective with the use of some active verbs:

  • "Worked with team of engineers to design tracking system for the Department of Health and Human Services. Researched system needs, reported results to team, and programmed in C++. Coordinated details of presentation to client."

The reader now has an idea that this student has teamwork, research, coding, and administrative skills. Examine your own descriptions to be sure that you are detailing the responsibilities you had and the skills you developed. The action verbs listed below can help you be more descriptive and detailed.

One of the hardest parts is to describe your work, volunteer, or other experiences in brief, meaningful phrases. Use the exercise included here to outline important aspects of these experiences and to get you started thinking about the skills you've practiced, responsibilities you've held, and significance of what you've done. Not only does this help you develop your resume, but it also helps you prepare to discuss your qualifications in a personal interview.
