A Good Time to Write Your Resume

Now is a good time to write your resume. Actually, it’s always a good idea to have your resume ready to go. Some of my students will be graduating this year and they’ve asked me for guidance in preparing their resumes. I direct them to www.CollegeGrad.com. The site offers FREE templates to help you write and create a professional resume. Here are some additional resume writing tips from me:

- Always be honest!

- Sell yourself! Think of your resume as a “marketing brochure” for yourself and “target” your “audience” (each prospective employer) and include information that shows how you’ll benefit their company or organization.

- PROOFREAD! PROOFREAD! PROOFREAD! Then ask someone else to proofread your resume, too! Typos and poor grammar can be “deal-breakers”…

Until next time,
