Update Your Resume

Career  – Activity: Update Your Resume

This week, create or review your resume. Look at the appearance and content and insure that this career tool will create the best possible positive impact. A video from Illinoisworknet provides a good overview.

Appearance:

  • What format is the best choice? Make a decision between Chronological, Functional, or a combination. The Chronological format is generally preferred by employers.
  • Does it look good? Do you make good use of white space, fonts, bullets and lines to organize and emphasize? Is it good quality printing and paper? It’s usually best to keep resumes to one page.

Content: Gather information to type with this printable form (pdf) from Hatch Staffing.

Outside the Box: Venturing beyond traditional advice is the visual resume (visualcv.com), or video resume.

Tools:

This is one of the weekly activities for a Year of Personal Development.

I am fascinated by the process of learning to read English and the idea of gamification to make learning fun. Phonics and literacy have become my passion project. I also write about personal development, goal setting, and time management. I enjoy finding great information, combining it in new ways, and packaging it creatively.
