Resume Building

A resume outlines your experiences—professional, academic, extracurricular—and resulting qualifications and skills. Employers may spend only a few seconds looking it over, so make sure your resume is well-organized and quickly draws attention to your top qualifications. Creating a resume can be challenging when you start thinking about all the information you need to share with prospective employers. Your professional profile, educational background, employment history, community involvement, awards and accomplishments, relevant skills, and qualifications all need to be presented in a way that will help you get selected for a job interview. 

Rather than a simple list of the jobs you have held, it’s important tailor each resume to include information specific to the positions for which you're applying. Your resume’s impact originates from both the details you include and the way you write about them. A person with limited experience but strong writing skills can put together a resume as compelling as someone who writes about their rich experiences ineffectively.


The Career Center has helped thousands of students draft resumes through workshops, one-on-one review, and the opportunity to have real employers read your resume and give valuable feedback.
