Writing a Resume

So you are applying for a job or submitting school applications and you want to include your resume. That is a great idea! But do you know what to put on your resume and what to avoid? First of all, make sure you include current contact information (your phone number, email address, etc.) in case they need to contact you. Also, you want to list your education (highest level of education as well as your current school) and employment history. If it is relevant, you can also list any academic, professional, or social clubs you belong to as well as any awards you have received for your work. What to avoid when you are making/designing your resume: you do not want a resume that is too long. As a basic rule, you should limit your resume to about 2 pages.  Many people make the mistake of listing every single job they have ever had, and this can make the resume very long.  You should mainly list jobs or experiences that relate to the job or position you are applying for. Basically, if you want a job in accounting, you don’t need to include your one summer of flipping burgers at McDonald’s!
