Fitness/Exercise Science Program – General Guidelines for the Standardized Resume

  Your resume is a summary of your various life experiences as they relate to your
   goal of being accepted into the Fitness Major. Information is categorized in sections
   chronologically with most recent to least recent. Required sections include:

      EDUCATION: College and high school educational background including honors and awards;
      Students from UW-La Crosse only graduate in May, August, or December.
      FITNESS RELATED EXPERIENCES: including job shadows, related employment and
      volunteer opportunities related to fitness. Include high school activities if they relate to Fitness.
      OTHER EXPERIENCES employment that is not related to Fitness
      CAMPUS AND COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT include college and community leadership
      opportunities that do not relate to fitness

      Some Optional Categories (if you have the background)
      RESEARCH ACTIVITIES: use title and your role in the activity (subject, author, data collector)
      RELATED CLASS PROJECTS. Only papers/projects related to Fitness

  Resumes change constantly as we gain experiences. Update each semester
  Every resume differs because you are unique and so are your experiences
  Create an original Microsoft Word document; Avoid fill in the blank templates.
  Be consistent with fonts and bullets to maintain uniformity throughout your resume.
  Eliminate personal pronouns, for example, I, my, their and our.
  Experience entries contain a job title, organization name, city, state and dates (in the
   right margin); avoid excessive use of dates in other categories. Entries describe skills
   learned/ used with different action verbs/adverbs. Use 2 tenses Present and Past.
  We recommend that you have your resume critiqued in an appointment at Career
   Services in the lower level of the Cartwright Center. Telephone 608-785-8514 press
   0 for the appointment desk of Career Services. Angie Lee is assigned to help Pre-
   Fitness majors.
  After your critique you may upload your resume into your Career Services account
   in EAGLE OPPORTUNITIES. You may access your account at this link
