May 10, 2016



Purdue University has Resume and Interview Tips for You!
Your resume is the first impression, so make it a good one. Here is a sample resume. Below are some tips to help you land you next job!

  • Write a clear, concise and easy-to-read resume in chronological order, free of errors, abbreviations, and slang.
  • Include ALL of your current contact information, education background, professional certifications, licenses and organizations.
  • Do not list personal, age-related or health information (e.g., 35, married with three kids and in excellent health).
  • Do not include pictures or graphics.
  • Do not refer to yourself in the third person or first person (e.g., if you are John Doe., do not make statements such as “Mr. Doe received an award for perfect attendance.” or “I received an award for perfect attendance.”). Use action verbs such as “Received award for perfect attendance.”
