Resume

  • Choose easy to read fonts like Times New Roman, Arial or Cambria.

  • Format your resume in black. If you wish to use color, use an easy-to-read, complimenting color like blue or dark grey as your headers. Do not use bright colors.

  • Make use of Microsoft Word resume templates or search the internet for an attractive template. 

  • Spelling and grammer - check it, and then check it again! If English is not your first language, reach out to someone who can assist you with proper grammatical choices, Use tools like "auto-correct" or "text language", as it is unprofessional to use short form in the business environment.

  • If you were a hiring manager, would you look twice at your resume? Is it easy to read, clear and concise?
