					                                    RÉSUMÉ WRITING
                                    A résumé is a marketing tool that highlights those aspects of your background
                                    you wish to draw to an employer’s attention. It should be concise and easy to
                                    read. It is often an employer’s initial contact with you and the basis on which
               LSG 500/LNG 300      decisions are made about whom to interview. Résumé writing is important
          Binghamton University     and can be time consuming. You must be willing to write and edit until you

                   P.O. Box 6000    qualifications for the position you seek.
     Binghamton, NY 13902-6000
                                    On average an employer will initially spend less than thirty seconds reviewing
                (607) 777-2400      your résumé. In this short time you need to convince the reader you are
    http://cdc.binghamton.edu       impressive enough to be invited for an interview. How do you do this? Where
                                    do you start? First of all, you need to know what a résumé is and what it is
      Division of Student Affairs   designed to do. Make those thirty seconds count!
CDC Resources:
•    During the academic year, programs presented by CDC staff and employers are offered to explain résumé
     basics and offer advice. Check CDC’s website or your eRecruiting account for dates and times.
•    Utilize Optimal Resume, a résumé writing tool, available on the CDC’s website.
•    Sample résumés are available in CDC South, on CDC’s website, and on eRecruiting.
•    Get a critique of your typed, rough draft during Counselor-on-Call.
•    Use the CDC database in Bearcat to identify books about résumé writing.
The Basics:
1. Be concise: Use phrases not sentences; use fewer words carefully chosen.
2. Think in terms of the reader: Gear your résumé to the skills, experiences and qualities employers seek in a
   candidate. Focus on the needs of your audience.
3. Use a formal writing style: Because this is an important document, you should stick with a formal writing
   style using no abbreviations (except states, GPA and degrees).
4. Make your résumé easy to read: Choose a visually appealing layout that presents the most relevant
   information early. Don’t make an employer hunt to locate important information!
5. Use a font size between 10 and 12 point: Employers may scan your résumé into a computer database so
   use bold, italics and underlining conservatively.
6. Length: Most employers prefer one page, but use two pages if your experience and qualifications warrant.
   If you do use two pages, put the most relevant information on the first page and be sure to put your name
   and “page 2” at the top of second page.
7. Final Draft: Print on high quality neutral-colored bond paper. Proofread carefully!! Don’t rely on spell
   check alone! Spell check cannot distinguish if you should use two, to, or too!
Select A Résumé Format:
1. Chronological: This is the most common type of résumé and presents your background by listing and
   describing positions you have held. Use reverse-chronological order (most recent first). It is an excellent
   choice for people with steady work histories or experience that relates closely to their career objective.
2. Functional: This style emphasizes skills, qualifications and accomplishments rather than position titles,
   employers and dates. It can be effective for career changers or those with limited or erratic work
   histories. This type of résumé works well for someone who wants to emphasize skills they have acquired
   relevant to current job objectives.
3. Combination: This combines the functional and chronological styles. Experience is organized
   chronologically with duties and responsibilities presented through skill clusters.
When Should You Use a Curriculum Vita (CV)?
A curriculum vitae (CV) is typically for academic or research positions. It is usually longer than a résumé and
will include publications, areas of research, presentations, and courses one is prepared to teach. More
information can be obtained from the “Writing a Curriculum Vitae” Quick Reference Guide.
Begin Your Draft!
Once you determine which format you’d like to use, you can begin to prepare your résumé. Remember, your
résumé highlights RELEVANT information related to your career objective. Organize this information into
categories that are easy to read and identify by employers. If the idea of using a template appeals to you, CDC
recommends current BU students utilize Optimal Resume (available on the CDC website) as it not only provides
résumé writing guidance but also has a great amount of flexibility and formatting options within the template.
You may also write your résumé from a blank document, using the tab key to align text.
Résumé Sections
How you order and label the sections of your résumé should be based on what aspect(s) of your background are
most relevant to the position(s) you seek. Remember, as readers review your résumé they will give the most
attention to what is at the beginning of your résumé and pay less attention as they scan to the bottom. Make
sure what you want them to see jumps out at them EARLY!
Identifying Information
•     Name, address, phone number, and email address (do not use an unprofessional address, such as
      cutiepie@yahoo.com).
•     Include a local and permanent address if you are a current student.

        rhoward@binghamton.edu

Objective
•     A brief statement that provides focus and direction to your résumé and indicates what you want and what
      you have to offer. The rest of the résumé should provide evidence of your qualifications for the
      opportunity you seek.
•     Should be specific to a position, skills you want to utilize, or field you want to enter.

    Examples:
    A position as an Account Executive at Saltag Corporation.

    An internship working with youth in a non-profit organization utilizing demonstrated interpersonal and
    organizational skills.

Education
•     Include institution(s) attended, degree obtained (or to be obtained), major(s), graduation date, minors,
      and concentrations.
•     Can include relevant courses, study abroad, honors, or scholarships (or put these in separate sections).
•     GPA is optional, depending on the position to which you’re applying. You can include your overall and
      major GPA, making sure to designate each one clearly (If concerned about whether or not to include GPA,
      talk to a career counselor). Indicate the GPA is out of a 4.0 scale (ex. 3.5/4.0), as some schools use other
      scales in their grading.
•     High school information is not included unless you are a freshman or sophomore, or you had a specialized
      high school experience relevant to your career objective (Talk to a counselor if unsure of what to do).

Experience
•   Always keep your objective in mind when deciding what experiences you will include and highlight!
•   Category headings may change based on your personal experience. Examples include “Relevant
    Experience,” “Teaching Experience,” or “Research Experience.”
•   List in reverse chronological order (most recent first) within your categories.
•   May include paid and unpaid positions including internships, volunteer experiences, summer jobs, or
    campus activities.
•   For each experience listed, include position held, organization name, city and state, dates of activity, and
    description using action verbs (see Writing Descriptions list below).
For many students writing the experience section is a challenge. To begin:
1. Create a list of the positions and activities in which you have been involved.
2. Refer to the list of action verbs below. Scan down the list and identify words that relate to your
    experiences. You will begin each of your descriptive statements with one of these words.
3. Ask yourself questions with regard to the action verbs such as Who? What? When? Why? How? How many?
    Results? Accomplishments? For instance, if you chose “tutored” from the list of action verbs you can
    enhance your statement by indicating who you tutored, how many, what subjects, and so on. You’ll end up
    with a statement such as: Tutored three at-risk junior high students in science and math.
4. Do you have numbers you can include (quantities, dollar amounts, percent increases or decreases)? This is
    the information that makes your résumé both informative and interesting.
A tip you can use to be sure you have worded your statements properly is to put an imaginary “I” in front of
the statement. If it makes sense with the “I” there, you have probably written the statement correctly (You
should never actually put a personal pronoun in your résumé).
