Resume Writing and Reviews

Need help with your resume?  Let the CRC give you a hand!

A Note from the Director

One of the most important documents you can have is your resume. This document captures skills and experiences you developed over time. My advice is to start your first year on campus. When you find that awesome internship or the perfect job, you will be ready! Remember, we, in the Career Resource Center, are here to help you every step of the way.

Here are some resume writing tips and resources to get you started.

Before you begin drafting your resume, start by asking yourself some critical thinking questions to get some ideas for the content of your resume. The Resume Content Page will help you lay a solid foundation for your resume. Next, take a look at some resume examples to assist you in developing a resume structure.

It's time to select a format that works best for you.  Refer to the Transferable Skills Inventory and Action Verb Sheet to help bring your resume to the next level. You can also refer to CRC resume guidelines for any questions you may have.

You should have several people review your resume and provide constructive feedback. It may take you 3-4 drafts before you are confident with your final version. We, at the Career Resource Center, are always here to review your resume. Call our office to schedule an in person appointment, or email your resume as a Word document with "Resume Review" in the email subject line for a virtual resume review.
