Career Tip of the Month: Polish that Resume

Whether you are looking for a job right now or dreaming of a graduation still several semesters away, it is never too early to create a polished, professional resume. Where to begin? Try the on-line “Creating a Resume Guide” on the Career Services webpage (http://www.uwgb.edu/careers/Creating_Resume_Guide.htm). You can also check out sample resumes (http://www.uwgb.edu/careers/Sample_Resumes.htm). Don’t just use those as templates, though – or rely on other professionally produced templates. Employers will recognize many of those, and they will have received many resumes that look just like them! You want your resume to be a fresh, professional document that is a unique reflection of your abilities and experiences. Don’t forget, by the way, that Career Services offers great resume review services, and they will also be the special guest at the P/HD Club resume writing session for our students on Monday, November 16th at 5:00 p.m. in MAC 210. You want this document to be perfect, so proofread, proofread, proofread, and get as many other perspectives on it as possible.
