Though your resume does not need to be limited to one page, you should be as concise as possible.
Use a simple font and size, such as Times New Roman in
12-point type. The heading should include your name,
street address, telephone number, and e-mail address.
Begin with a "Career Overview" or " Summary" listing your strengths and experience, which will be illustrated by measurable accomplishments in the body of your resume.
Under "Education," list your most recent degree first. Include school, location, and graduation date. If you are enrolled in a program, mention your anticipated graduation date.
Below "Professional Experience," begin with your most recent job first. Include place of employment, job title, dates of employment, and a brief description of your responsibilities. Use bullets to describe accomplishments in quantitative terms for each position.
Action words such as supervised, managed, developed, implemented, and increased give your resume extra impact.
List Licensure, Certifications, Memberships or Associations, Awards, and Personal Activities (such as community service) at the end.
It is acceptable to complete your resume with "References available upon request."
Be sure to proofread. Do not rely on spell check. Double-check your text and then have someone else review your resume, too. Errors are unacceptable and can eliminate you from consideration.
"The person who makes a success of living is the one who sees his goal steadily and aims for it unswervingly. That is dedication."
