A1 Interviewing & Resume Tips

 
 

Keep your resume to one page.  Be brief and to the point.  Career Objective is optional, but limits your potential.  You can state your objective in the interview.  Do not use the word I anywhere on the resume.

NAME

Address

City, State  Zip

Phone Number

 EXPERIENCE

Mon/Yr-Present      Company Name, City, State

Position

Description of position.  State all responsibilities as clearly and concisely as possible.  List all computer or other skills used.  If you have been promoted or transferred to another position, separate the two positions to clearly define the  jobs.

If you have had quite a few positions, state only the last ten years.  If you have worked temp, do not put them downs as a "permanent" position.  State that you worked temporary assignments and review some of the main duties and skills used.  It is necessary to state what you did with no gaps on the resume.
