Creating a "Results" Resume

A resume is a written summary that highlights your education, experience, skills, and other relevant information. The primary purpose of the resume is to get you an interview. Employers often scan resumes very quickly. Therefore, it is imperative that your resume looks professional and dynamic.

Your Name

Street Address | City, State Zip | Phone Number | E-Mail Address

Objective: An objective can include job title, industry, and competencies or skills you would like to use in your position.

Education: Saint Louis University ? John Cook School of Business, St. Louis, MO Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Graduation Month and Year Concentration (Certificates, Minors or Supporting Area, if applicable) Include GPA if it is over 3.0/4.0

Relevant Experience: Internship Title, Dates when you worked Name of Company, City, State

Use phrases, starting each phrase with an action verb to grab reader's attention. Explain job duties including skills used and accomplishments.

Employment History: Job Title, Dates when you worked Company Name, City, State

Additional Headings: On-campus Activities Leadership Experience Study Abroad Relevant Coursework Language Skills Honors / Awards Community Service / Volunteer Experience Computer Skills

General Tips: Keep in mind that an employer will typically scan a resume for 1 minute or less. Be honest throughout your resume--never lie. Do not use a resume template or table to create your resume. Type the resume in Arial or Times New Roman in 11 or12-point size for text Limit your resume to one page for traditional students Use indentations, capital letters, bolding, and bullets to effectively enhance important information Tailor resumes to specific positions or employers Never include references or the statement "References Available Upon Request" Never include personal information such as age, hobbies, interests, marital status Generally include a cover letter with your resume Proofread! Let several people (including Career Services staff) critique your resume
