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?

The next step in the resume development process is to actually write your resume. Once you have written/edited/revised it and you are ready to have someone review it there are a number of ways you can do this with our office.

  1. You can upload it to BuffJobs and, unless you already have an approved resume in that system, one of our staff members will automatically review it.  Click the "BuffJobs" button on the right side of the page to get to the BuffJobs login page. Contact our office if you need assistance getting logged in. Note that it can 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 want to choose option #2 below.
  2. You are also welcome to come to an in-person review time with a Career Services staff member. We have these 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 5, 2015 we will not be offering in person reviews due to staff training.)

If you attended this workshop as a class requirement and the faculty member is asking you to have your resume "Approved by Career Services" - this can only be accomplished through uploading it to BuffJobs.

A final note: many resumes are not 'approved' at the first review. Please do not be discouraged if this happens to you. Read through our recommendations and edit accordingly before resubmitting to BuffJobs. We will continue to work with you until your resume is ready to use!
