Create, edit, and evolve your resume to land your dream job.
One of the most important documents you will create is your résumé. The primary pupose of a résumé is to get you an interview. It is your personal marketing tool for applying to clubs, leadership positions, scholarships, internships, employment, or graduate schools. As you build your résumé, focus on the value you bring. A résumé is not so much about you, but more about how you, your talents, and your experiences match the organization’s needs or requirements. Notice the emphasis is on the organization’s needs, not yours. A well-written résumé should:
- promote your unique combination of education, experiences, skills, qualifications, and activities
- grab the reader’s attention
- generate an interview.
