- Resumes should only be one page, anything longer is not necessary.
- It is better to expand on major involvements/accomplishments, rather than list things that do not have a lot of significance.
Only list involvements/accomplishments that you can actually speak to.
Keep resumes clear and concise. Quantify information when applicable, and always write in the past tense. Use different action verbs to differentiate experiences.
Resumes are organized in chronological order. Start from your most recent experiences and then move your way back.
There are multiple DIY resume templates online, use one to get a basis for your resume. We recommend Canva.
Have someone else review your resume. They will be able to help you and catch errors/inconsistencies that you may not be able to. The Howe writing center and career services is a great place on campus to get resumes reviewed!
