A resume is a written inventory of qualifications, skills and accomplishments submitted to an employer briefly telling who you are, what you know and what you have done. It should serve as an introduction to the employer and does not replace the function of the interview. A carefully prepared resume can be a tangible asset to job seeking - poorly prepared, it can be a serious liability. We discourage use of career objectives as this only serves to limit your scope of usage. The following will serve as a guideline for effective resume preparation.
Include your name, address, telephone number and email address.
Work History and/or Experience
List (in reverse chronological order) name and location of company, positions held and dates of employment. Include descriptions of specific duties performed, including any special accomplishments.
List formal education including dates of graduation and degrees or certificates received (Post secondary education first, high school last).
