Are you putting together a resume for Spring internships, possible jobs, or even just to get ahead? Take these three quick tips into account while you develop your professional resume.
1. Keep your resume on one page. If you have less than 5 years of experience, a good rule of thumb is to keep everything on one sheet.
2. Don’t have any true professional experience yet? Wrong! Remember, all experience is worth something. Begin to understand how working at the same restaurant has helped prepare you for your future. For example, job loyalty, interpersonal skills, stress management, and more!
3. Remove unnecessary items. These could include “References Available Upon Request”, an objective statement, old high school (or earlier) accomplishments, etc. They will only clutter your resume with things that will most likely not be relevant or seem outdated.
