Your resume is one of the most important tools for a successful job search. It is a marketing brochure that markets your unique set of skills and experiences.
While there are many different approaches to resume writing, you will want to be informed about the approaches most appropriate to the industries you will be targeting in your job search.
Your resume must be much more than a list of basic job descriptions. It must be accomplishment-oriented, clearly communicating what you have actually accomplished through your education and experience. If you are struggling with developing your list don't forget to think about on-campus activities or student organization involvement.
A number of resources and programs are available to students to assist in the development of a professional resume.
