Suggestions for Writing a Résumé

  • Keep it to one page

  • Don’t try to make it too fancy, use an easy to read font style

  • Don’t tell everything about yourself

  • Don’t include personal information like age or birth-date

  • Check for spelling and grammar – ERROR FREE!

  • Use a computer, don’t hand write it
