What To Say in Your Resume
Your name, telephone number, and email address belong at the top of your resume. Even if a hiring manager knows you, you need to make it easy for someone to get in touch with you. You could also include the city and state you live in, a link to social media sites, and a professional website.
Most resumes have a summary statement, an opening paragraph that goes over impressive skills, experiences, and accomplishments, toward the top of the page. However, as a college student, you may not have the experience to fill this three-sentence paragraph, so use an objective statement instead. This opening paragraph or bulleted list points out what you hope to achieve and learn on the job.
This section goes over your industry-specific and soft skills. You can look through the job description to figure out exactly what the hiring manager is looking for. Remember to only include the abilities you have.
For most resumes, this section holds the most information. This might not be true for you, and because of that, it might belong at the end of your document. Usually, you want to include a brief description of your past jobs, including position name, company name, employment dates, and a list of accomplishments and duties. Don’t forget you can include volunteer work and internships here.
As a college student, your education may play a big role on your resume even though it’s not yet complete. You should discuss your major, the degree you're pursuing, the college you’re attending, your current GPA, and your expected graduation date. You may even point out courses you took or academic awards you won.
