Career Services Resume Samples

Examples and Formats AND What Now?...

Resist the urge to copy any of these - in whole or in part. First because you did not write them, second because they were not written about you and your unique history and third because thousands of people have access to these examples every year.

It is imperative that your individual resume be a unique representation of you - the knowledge, skills and abilities you possess and well as your educational, work and civic history.

Use these as a guide - an example - but replace the content with YOU!!


What NOW?

You will write your rough draft resume or edit your existing resume applying the concepts just covered. Feel free to go back to the table of contents and review any areas in which you are unclear.

Revise as needed Review the job description/vacancy notice and use this resume checklist to determine the effectiveness of your draft.

Complete this survey to let our office know that you completed this workshop! Doing so will allow you to come into the office during our resume review times for a one-on-one review of your resume. Note that if you do not complete this activity, we will not have verification that you went through the resume workshop and may ask that you do so again.  Click here to complete this verification.

Have your resume reviewed by a Career Services staff member. There are two ways you can do this:

  1. In-person with a Career Services staff member, if your schedule permits. We offer these 15-minute sessions on a first come first served drop-in basis, every week on Tuesday and Wednesday from 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. (August 9, 2017 we will not be offering in person reviews due to staff training.)
  2. You can send it to us electronically here. Note that it may take up to 4 working days to hear back from our staff after you've uploaded your resume... so if you need immediate feedback, you'll need to choose option #1 above.

IF you are in a class that requires you have your resume 'approved' or if you want to engage in one of the activities that require you to have an approved resume, note that most resumes are not 'approved' during the first review. Please do not be discouraged if this happens to you. Read through our recommendations and edit accordingly before resubmitting it to us either in person or through the electronic portal. We will continue to work with you until your resume is ready to use! Our mission is to help you succeed.
