A resume is a snapshot of you, your education, and your job experience for an employer to look at and consider you as a possible employee. Your resume should be put together in an easy to read format and contain as much information about you without becoming too many pages long. Here are a few hints on how to craft your resume.
Always have your name at the top of the resume centered in large, bold print with your contact information just below in smaller, regular size print. Include your home address, home telephone, cellular number, and e-mail address. If you are able to receive calls at your present job, you may also want to include your business phone number on your resume.
Since your resume is what the employers see first, you will want it to be well-organized and professional looking.
Start each section of your resume with what will make the most difference in getting the job. Is your education what might put you over the top to get the job? Perhaps it is your previous job experience. The goal of your resume is to get you into that interviewer's office, so put your best foot forward and let your abilities speak with the most important part first.
