RÉSUMÉ WRITING TIPS
THE LOOK
Make your résumé visually appealing by ensuring your name stands out, and using headings that separate the content into areas that are easy to see at-a-glance. Make sure the spacing and format is consistent, and the printing is crisp and clean. Use a font that is clear and easy to read and print on a high-quality paper.
THE CONTENT
Arrange content so that a prospective employer finds out quickly who you are, what position you want, and why you are right for that position. Consider using an Objective Statement at the top to clarify the position you are seeking. An attention-grabber identifies the position you are applying for and suggests where you want to be in a year or two. Example: A part-time Office Clerk position leading to a full-time Representative position, with the goal of increasing productivity and reducing costs.
SHOWCASING YOURSELF
Think about what you are really good at and let those skills shine through in your résumé. Most employers are looking for a list of accomplishments or responsibilities you have had in prior positions. Do not simply list company names and job titles; include highlights of your tenure that showcase your skills. Example: Created a style guide that was implemented company-wide, edited the monthly internal newsletter and managed business travel arrangements for my supervisor.
The more skills and experience you have, the more valuable you are to an employer. Include all your relevant prior positions and experience when applying for any position. Showcasing your skill set can separate you from the pack.

Do not include personal characteristics such as height, weight, health, gender, marital status, number of children, ethnic origin, religion, or age. Avoid clichés such as “hard worker” or “quick learner.” Leave out unrelated interests like weekend hobbies, etc. unless they relate directly to the job you are applying for. For privacy concerns, do not include references. If you are asked for references, they should be provided on a separate page.

INTERVIEW TIPS
DRESS APPROPRIATELY
You do not get a second chance to make a first impression. Less than ten seconds is the average length of time you have to make a first impression.
Dress professionally and appropriately for the interview. For both men and women, wearing a jacket takes business dress up a notch.
Be well groomed. People will look from your head to your feet. Shoes should be appropriate for the business environment. Pay attention to your hair - the interviewer will. Do not wear cologne, perfume or anything that calls attention to you or distracts from the occasion.
PLAN AHEAD
Know the location of the interview and a contact phone number in case you get lost. If you are going to a part of town that you are unsure of, drive the route ahead of time to ensure you are not late.
Arrive no more than ten minutes ahead of time. Don’t be too early, or you create an interruption. Someone will have to be concerned about making you comfortable while you wait.
KNOW THE COMPANY
Use the Internet or other means to find out more about the company you will be interviewing with and what their business is. Read any recent business-related articles about the company.
Sources of Information:
- Company’s Web Site
- Company’s Brochure/Literature and Annual Report
- Business Library
- Google or Dunn and Bradstreet Report
- Former Employees
KNOW YOURSELF
Think about what you have accomplished in your career, and what skills you have that make you a good match for the company. Think of examples that you can share during the interview that showcase your past successes. Read the job description if available.
PREPARE QUESTIONS
Think about any questions you may have about the company, the position, the working environment and other key interests prior to the interview.
