IS YOUR RESUME READY? Here are four things to check, and more resume tips and samples are also available here.


  • PERSONAL INFO - Is all your information updated and correct and easily referenced?  Double check your email address and phone number.
  • DATES of EMPLOYMENT - This is very important.  Don't omit anything.
  • RELEVANT SKILLS - Is it easy to scan your resume and see your qualifications, certifications, strengths?  Be honest, but be thorough. 
  • VISUALLY APPEALING - Opinions may vary here, but from our experience here are some good guidelines to follow:  Chose one clean, modern font, like Helvetica.  Use columns whenever possible so that there are never more than 15 words stretching across a line. Choose ONE font enhancer (larger, bold, italic, all-caps) to call out what you want the reader to see at first glance. Avoid graphic shapes, shading, and color that may not scan well or that may distract the reader.
