what are you applying for?
we learned about them in spanish class. in that we write about our height and birthdate and shit. i dont think its right.
include like accomplishments, what you can offer, past experiences/jobs/relations
-------------------------------------- 7fold poles 703
education, previous job experience, a couple personal activities (to show you're a normal person), volunteer stuff if you have room. Keep it to 1 page. Companies only glance at resumes so you want your most important information first.
you're trying to sell yourself so only include good things about yourself and your accomplishments. highschool, college, grad school, etc... also, any honors you graduated with, i.e. valedictorian, magna cum laude, etc...
Absolutely do not put your references on your resume. "References upon request" is all you need. It's disrespectful to the people who agreed to be your reference to freely give away their information, like their home phone number, to every single place you apply. If a company is interested in you, then you can give them your reference, typically after being contacted for an interview.
It really depends.
I've applied to several places lately,
and most of them have asked for a list of references.
So I've just asked the person,
who you're using as a reference,
if you are able to put them onto your resumée,
And I've never used a home phone number.
Prettyy much always use the last place I worked/volunteered for; so the number at work.
Sorry, but I would agree with Killa_Cam. Do not put references on your resume. If they would like references, they will ask. There are much better ways to use the space at the early stage of submitting a resume.
Also, I think you mentioned earlier that the resume should be no more than 2 pages. Actually, I would not go over a page for people our age (HS/College/Young Professionals). It should be concise. Only people that have been working for many years, with substantially more experience than people of our age, should have resumes that are several pages long.
College - state degrees/major and graduation date
GPA info (can list both Major GPA and Cumulative GPA if desired)
Relevent Coursework (important classes that you have taken that pertain to the job you are applying for)
GPA (if available) and SAT score
Honors and Awards if applicable
(list experiences in reverse-chronological order: start with most recent)
For each experience, do not only state company/job title/etc, but use bullet points to highlight responsibilities, achievements, lessons learned, etc.
List of Computer Skills
(and any other skills that may apply)
Personal Interests and Activities
Hope that all helps, feel free to ask more questions or run your resume by me if you need any help.
