Revive and Refresh your Resume

Is your resume looking a little dull? Here are 4  tips and tricks we found helpful to boost your resume game!

1.) Job Description

If you can’t seem to describe your job/experience or are having a hard time remembering what you did, Google it. Hit the search tab and Google: “(your job) description” and see how others describe it. Maybe this will give you an idea. For example, this summer I was a hostess, but when I went into the Career Planning Center to add my new experience I couldn’t think of how to describe what I had done.During my meeting a career counselor gave me this simple idea, which is one of the most helpful tips I’ve ever gotten.

2.) Proofread!

You can never overly-check your resume for spelling errors, because spell check will not catch every mistake.

3.) Wording

Use present action verbs for current positions. (ex. “resolve” not “revolved” )

4.) Ordering

Keep your positions organized in reverse-chronological order by END DATE within each section.  Recruiters want to know what you’re currently doing or what you’ve done most recently, so make sure that’s listed first.
