General Tips for Improving Your Resume
- Proofread it. Twice. Because errors on your resume reflects poorly on your attention to detail.
- Let someone else proofread it. Twice. Because it's difficult to find your own mistakes.
- Use a simple format. You want your information to be memorable, not your layout (unless you're a graphic designer or artist).
- Use short, concise sentences. Too much text overwhelms a reviewer's eyes. You only get a few moments of their attention, so make your strong points stand out.
- Include your coursework and academic projects. Don't be hesitant to do so, especially if you have no work experience. What else are you supposed to put?
- Include any charity or community service work. Sometimes people help with projects for a family member or religious organization, don't be afraid to use that.
- List your achievements. High grade averages and test scores never fail to impress. Low grade averages and test scores should never be spoken of. Ever.
- If you have any work experience at all that can give you a positive reference, list it. Showing you're not afraid to work, even at unrelated jobs, shows dedication and responsibility. Not all recent graduates have that.
