Resume Tips for Creating a Professional Resume
Since becoming a Career Counselor, I have been very surprised at how many students have no idea how to write an effective resume. In today's job market, having a professionally written resume is critical. The employers we work with say they generally spend about 10-15 seconds looking at a resume for a first round interview for an entry level position. While there is no definite right or wrong way to format a resume, you do want to make sure that you are able to convey important, relevant information in a way that will allow an employer to gain the information they are looking for by scanning over your document.
