To get an employer's attention, your resume should reflect a consistent, clear, compelling personal brand and should include those experiences and skills that are most relevant to the position you are applying for. Your resume should be targeted to the company/industry, easy to read, action and results oriented, and should differentiate you from other candidates.
Advances in technology and the emergence of social media provide additional opportunities for you to build your brand via your resume. Today's resumes invite employers to learn more on-line by incorporating QR codes, blogs, web-sites, digital resumes, and social media information, into their resumes. Increasingly, employers use these to learn more about a candidate and to inform their hiring decisions. Please see the Online Branding area of our web-site for further information.
Below, you will find resources to get started with your resume, including guidelines, action verbs, sample resumes, and
online branding. Once you have a draft of your resume, stop by CCD and meet with a career advisor for a résumé critique. Let's get started!
