What To Say in Your Resume
Full name: Provide your full name so that employers can generate accurate applicant records
Phone number: Give a phone number where employers can reliably reach you, ideally either a personal cell or home number
Mailing address: At the very least, include your current city and state where you reside
Email address: Use an email address that is safe for work and that you check regularly
Social Media: You may add links or usernames for professional social media profiles
Summary Statement: Emphasize your best qualifications for a position by starting your resume off with a summary statement. This series of phrases should correspond to the job description of the position for which you are applying and indicate that you might be the right fit.
Objective Statement: If you are early in your career or changing fields, your resume might benefit from an objective statement. This declaration of your purpose or intent in seeking employment can give an employer a sense of your reason for applying and your professional goals.
Identify: Come up with a list of skills relevant to the position you are seeking
Select: Choose keywords from the job description that you can use to describe your abilities in the same way as the employer
Prioritize: Make sure to organize the skills you list in a way that reflects the employer’s perception of the priorities of the advertised position
Structure: The first entry in this section should be your current job or most recent employment. Then, go backward through time to describe previous positions.
Role: Start each entry with your job title, the name and location of your employer, and the dates of your employment.
Details: List a few responsibilities, accomplishments, or compelling metrics that support your ability to succeed in each entry.
Academics: Provide details on all of your degrees, starting with your most recent or highest level of education. If a position requires a degree beyond a high school diploma, you do not need to provide details about your high school.
Training: The education section of your resume is also a perfect place to bring up professional credentials and include training, certifications, licenses, or professional memberships.
