Resume Tips

Your resume is your first chance to make a positive impression. Be sure your resume is free of grammatical errors and typos.

Your resume should include your name, address, telephone number and email address. Also – make sure your voicemail message is professional. A message that is too casual does not create a positive impression.

Include a summary statement with your title and years of experience with a brief description of accomplishments.

List professional experience in reverse chronological order. Each position should describe your responsibilities and accomplishments.

Describe education, professional training, licenses, certifications, professional affiliations, and languages.

Your resume should show prospective employers your accomplishments with:

  • Saved money

  • Increased efficiencies

  • Increased revenues

  • Improved workplace safety

  • Effective budgeting

  • Purchasing accomplishments
