There are various sources online and on our website that give you the guidelines to begin developing a framework for your resume.
You might have been asked by your instructor in a course to design a resume as part of an assignment. You may have a parent who has helped you develop your first resume. There are others such as your academic advisor or the reading/writing center that may have reviewed your resume and offered their feedback.
It is up to you as you receive this feedback to create the resume that best represents you and your experiences and skills. You have the ability to finalize your resume based on all the feedback.
Keep in mind because you are an individual that has differing experiences and education and your resume is going to look much different than your friend’s resume. With this in mind, use our guidelines for establish a draft of your resume and bring it to our drop-in clinics.
See our guidelines for establishing a resume – bring a typed rough draft to our clinic hours to gain feedback from the career advisors in Career Services.
