Resume Checkup

Your resume writing is complete!  Now it's time to have your resume reviewed and critiqued.

These tips will make your resume easier to read and/or scan in an employer's database.


Content:

  • Run a spell check on your computer before anyone sees your resume.
  • Get a friend (an English major would do nicely) to do a grammar review.
  • Ask another friend to proof read. The more people who see your resume, the more likely that mis-spelled words and awkward phrases will be seen (and corrected).
 

Design:

  • Use A4 white or off-white paper.
  • Print on one side of the paper.
  • Use a font size of 10 to 14 points.
  • Use nondecorative typefaces.
  • Choose one typeface and stick to it.
  • Avoid italics, script, and underlined words.
  • Do not use horizontal or vertical lines, graphics, or shading.
  • Do not fold or staple your resume.
  • If you must mail your resume, put it in a large envelope
