Resume Tips and Tricks for Success

One of the most amazing parts of all those great experiences, jobs & internships you’ve had throughout your college career is finally putting it all together for that future job that you’re sure to get! University Tees is here with all of the tips and tricks you need to put together the best resume and make yourself stand out from all of the other applicants.


 





As a recent graduate, I know the stress & confusion that comes with finally having to complete your resume. Sometimes you think you have too much and can’t hone down on the information you want to include, and sometimes you may feel like you do not have enough work experience to include. I’m here to help you be concise while listing all of your experiences and jobs on one page!







Prioritizing Experiences:

One of the most important things I learned throughout every workshop I attended in college was that for the most part HR managers who are reviewing resumes take about 10 seconds on each page. This means that what is at the top of your resume is the most important part. Place what you think is most important experience you have that applies to the role you are applying for at the top of all of your work experiences. For example, if you are applying for a graphic design position, you would want to list your most relevant graphic design experiences first. While part time jobs are still important, they can be listed last. It is all about strategy and what you want the HR managers to prioritize about your resume.

Keeping your Resume as Simple as Possible:

Keep Everything Short:

Add Your Specific School’s Accreditation:

Be Yourself!


I hope these few tips can help you hone into what you value in your experiences! Every experience has its own story, so be prepared to be able to explain that once you get your interview. Employers love to hear more than what is on your resume and what you have learned from the experiences listed. Good luck with all of your future job interviews!
