A resume is a concise, well-organized summary of your background and qualifications. It does not describe everything you have done, but highlights what is most relevant to the position you are seeking. Writing your resume will take time and effort, but this guide will help you focus on the essential components. Before distributing your resume, have a Career Counselor, a Career Center Peer Advisor, or a professional in your field review it to make sure it represents you well. Employers devote 15-30 seconds reading each resume—make it attractive, readable, informative and concise. Individualize your resume to highlight your unique qualities.
