• Resumes

    Did you know the average employer scans your resume for less than 30 seconds? Employers will decide based on that quick scan if you have an interview. The question is how can you make your resume stand-out?

    Creating a strong, concise resume is very important. A good resume will market your experiences and skills to the employer, and get you noticed for an interview. Tailor each resume specifically for the job you’re applying for by including only your experiences and education relevant to that position.

    • Keep your resume to one page (especially if you have less than 2 years in targeted field)
    • Do not use personal pronouns (e.g., I, you, she, he)
    • Start all phrases with action verbs (e.g., Managed, Developed, Led, Analyzed, etc.)
