One of the most important parts of career planning is developing a resume.

Career and Professional Development can help build a resume from the ground up or fine-tune one to be the best it can be.

A resume is a descriptive summary of your background:

  • concisely written in one or two pages
  • always sent with a cover letter
  • presented attractively
  • clearly communicating a sense of purpose and professionalism
  • focusing on strengths and abilities 
  • never containing negative information or weaknesses

The primary purpose of the resume is to obtain an interview.

Keep in mind that your resume might not be read by a human being and instead might be scanned into a computer database.

You might mail, email, or post your resume online. Slight variations in writing style are required for each situation; consider calling the organization to determine which type of resume to send.
