To win that all important interview, you need to have a resume that
stands apart from the rest on the recruiters desk. A strong resume will highlight your relevant
qualifications, experience and accomplishments to prospective employers. It will demonstrate your ability to meet
their needs and persuade them to invite you in for an interview. Why is developing a strong resume so
Preparing a resume can be frustrating and time consuming, but it is
worth the extra time to assemble a strong resume to help you land your dream
job! Worried? Don’t be! Student Employment Services have created an
easy-to-read Professional Resume Guide (pdf) detailing how to prepare your
resume. There is also a Sample Resume
Template (docx) to help you start to organize your information. Before you upload or submit your resume by email, read our guidelines on how to create an Applicant Tracking System (pdf) friendly resume
to avoid your resume being rejected due to a simple formatting error.
The handbook and template are provided to help you get started. We recommend that you book an appointment
with us for a resume review.
Students and Alumni are always welcome to drop by Student Employment Services in BIRCH 270, or email firstname.lastname@example.org for an appointment, and have an advisor review their cover letter and resume.
