Exchange your resume with your neighbor to the right. Each entry is worth 5 points.  Grade the resumes as I go over these entries.
59 and below=F

• Write your resume to the job-show them you have the qualifications for the job
• For most recent college grads keep your resume to one page
• Use one inch margins on the sides, top and bottom. Do NOT deviate from this
• Use a light colored resume paper
• Use 12 font throughout your resume unless space becomes an issue. Consult a Career Advisor if you are close to one page and do not want to remove any of your entries
• Always use a 12 font and bold for your “Functional Titles”-Example-Education, Related Experience, Honors, etc.
• Make your name stand out by being a larger font than anything else on your resume- typically a 14-16 font.
• Always use action verbs to begin your entries and keywords to identify skills
• Make sure you select one type of resume-either a Chronological, Skills or Combination (use a skills summary at the beginning)
• If you use an objective statement make sure it is short and very specific
• Typically in the Experience section you will lead with your job title
• Be specific and list accomplishments-“Increased productivity by 20%....”
• All dates are right justified/Single space the body of the resume


• Do not make any spelling errors
• Do not use too many indentations
• Do not write a “long-winded” objective
• Do not use an under-utilized font - common fonts are include Arial, Book Antiqua, Century Schoolbook, Garamond, Tahoma, Times New Roman and Verdana
• Never exceed 2 pages unless it is a federal resume
• Do not list classes or class descriptions unless they are relevant to your job/internship
• Never use “I”, “me” or “my” and never write in sentence form
• Do not list references on your resume-do that on a reference page

    Are these good or bad objectives??

    -To obtain a position that will enable me to use my strong organizational skills, educational background, and ability to work well with people.


    -“Seeking a project management position with leadership responsibilities including problem solving, planning, organizing and managing budgets.”

    -Obtain a position at XYZ Company where I can maximize my management skills, quality assurance, program development, and training experience.

    -To secure a position with a well established organization with a stable environment that will lead to a lasting relationship in the field of finance.

    -To secure a management position where I can effectively utilize my expertise in human relations, project management, and staff recruitment and retention.

    -While I am open to any uses of my educational achievements, I am decidedly disposed that the task of the new career-related responsibility be so oriented as to at least partially address or configure and  to ultimately lead to the application of more rarefied and challenging facets of financial management as the major sphere of the responsibility of the stated position.


    -To continue my career with an organization that will utilize my MANAGEMENT, SUPERVISION & ADMINISTRATIVE skills to benefit mutual growth and success.
