Resumes

Your resume is one of the most important tools for a successful job search. It is a marketing brochure that markets your unique set of skills and experiences.

Purpose

The purpose of a resume is to land you an interview. It is important to remember that not all resumes are the same and your resume should be customized and targeted to the position.

Your resume must be much more than a list of basic job descriptions. It must be accomplishment-oriented, clearly communicating what you have accomplished through your education and experience. Don't forget about the importance of on-campus activities and student organization involvement.
