Resume Basics

At the job fairs and online, CFEC receives thousands of resumes. While many are very good, we have also seen many that could be hindering instead of helping a job search. We put together some suggestions that will help you to be more successful in your search:

+ Put your name, full address (with zip code) and telephone number on the resume.

+ Keep your email address professional. We had a few that were downright nasty! Luscious anything should not be in your e-mail.

+ Make sure your punctuation is correct, spelling is PERFECT, and you put a space in between words.

+ Use FL not fl for the state.

+ Use black type and Arial or New Times Roman font. They are easily scannable.

+ Do not put your picture on the resume unless you are applying for a modeling position.

+ Do not use fancy paper with clouds, etc.

+ Do not have long drawn out resumes with super small font. NO more than 1 to 2 pages. We got one for an entry level job that was 7 pages.

+ Do not put personal information like – I live with my lovely wife Ivette who I have been married to for 30 years. Our 2 sons are in college…

+ Don’t put I in a resume.

+ Use the right word. There is a difference between Their and There.

The key is, a neat and clean resume with your skills highlighted and your accomplishments front and center. Bullets are great. Use action words. Above all PROOFREAD!
