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 seek to create order from the chaos of complex information. Join me at the Daily PlanIt to gain insights, inspiration, and information to increase skills for a better life. I unlock the power of teaching reading with phonics in the pursuit of literacy at www.phonicspow.com. In my spare time I explore books and movies, often choosing titles available on both screen and page.
