I don't see one on the board, so let's fucking do this.
>the resume in image
>jobs you want/are seeking
>any other background info
I need alot of help on mine, so I'll go first.
I'll take what i can get, but I don't wanna work retail again, unless i get to work exclusively in the back, because dealing with consumers sucked. I'd prefer some sort of office job.
i want parttime work, since i'm still trying to finish school.
the independent/freelance stuff is mainly bullshit, i hardly ever have customers
whoops, that should be 2015, thats a screenshot from before i made that edit.
here's the shit that is on the second page, i still haven't figure out what/where to delete
Holy shit I hope you're kidding. Take that off right now. That's the most autistic thing I've ever seen on a resume. It's even worse than that my little pony resume, because at least that guy had some impressive work.
>How are you going to explain the relative drop in your GPA since your most recent program?
>"Meet with client" under Freelance Audio Production Specialist should be "clients" or "clientele"
>"Edit, mix and prepared" should be "Edit, mix and prepare" to keep the tense in the section consistent.
>Fix the "techniqu" typo under Private Piano Instructor
>Under Private Piano Instructor bullet #2 - "Worked with adults, teenagers and children", spell out what that experience has given you (ex. develop communication/instructional skills with diversity of people)
And generally, add in more "results". The employers don't really need a job description. They want to see skills showcased.
Keep your interests limited to 5 things, and like the other guy said, you might want to cut out speed reading unless its somehow valuable for the jobs you're applying to.
And develop your interests a bit more -- who doesn't have "music" or "film" as an interest? Say something like "music (production and performance)"
Hitting 6 months unemployed. Any help would be great.
I would make your overview sound more possessive. Use the words "I am an accomplished and technically minded event manager"
"I am an adaptable professional."
While keeping your resume concise, you don't want it to lack personality. They need to be reminded in your wording that YOU are a valuable asset to their company and YOU are providing them something that no one else can. They've read several resumes before yours and have heard nothing but lists of impersonal adjectives that sound more like a shopping list then a letter to convince them that you are worthy of their time.
In essence, you want to make the best impression possible concisely and professionally.
Confidence is great, but arrogance is a sure sign of weakness which is covered by lies.
Things like awards, education, and previous work experience should be impersonal but the overview should give them a peek at your character.
ESL teacher, but now looking for work/projects in online education, academic management, publishing, teacher training, etc. Pages 2 and 3 are basically a list of previous jobs, projects and education.
I usually send the CV with a link to my personal site, which contains a portfolio of my teaching, creative (graphic design, video editing) and web development work.
I'd like to turn my site into a fully interactive CV sometime in the future, and also develop an infographic CV similar to this:
why do you have an apostrophe after years
the hyphens in your top two bullet points should be commas
i'm guessing your education is more important than your certs (put it higher)
most important things higher... your fleet records stand out more than "overseeing all programming"
if this was in the US i wouldn't even look at it.. are EU resumes really this different?
2-3 pages and you only have 6 years experience? yeah you only need one page.
languages like xp bars? surely you can express your language skills in a more acceptable format
expected grad 2013 - better update that shit with your real info
certificates in the edu section? your call, but i would expect it somewhere separate
your work experience should be in chrono order.. freelance stands out as not being chrono. if you're still doing, it put it top, especially since your top work experience doesn't sound that strong - key word: assisted.
not knowing about either, your freelance work sounds much stronger anyways, so put it top.
cashier for one month? i'd leave it out to avoid awk questions.
So far it's worked brilliantly. I've had a few
compliments in interviews that it's one of the best CVs they've seen and that it really stood out and caught their attention.
I'm trying to take short cuts and apply for jobs which are a few rungs above me on the ladder (everybody is at least 10 years older than me in what I'm doing), and the CV is a good way to show from the offset that I can offer something new and innovative to their company.
My design isn't perfect by any means, but imo, a traditional CV isn't the optimal way of presenting information about your skills and experience. Some things are better presented with graphs, maps, timelines, etc.
Of course if you're working for a big company, you don't want to stand out too much, but if the company you're applying to wants creative and innovative thinkers, then infrographics are the way to go.
What do you guys think of a "Hobbies & Interests" section? My friend said it seems little juvenile, like something you might put on your first resume after high school to take up a little more space. I thought it added a little bit of personal character to what might otherwise just be a work history. For context, I'm 6 months out of college.
Been waiting for this thread for days. Rezscore gave me a C and says I should remove the objective.
Lol @ fastest typer
Anyways take out your courses and throw in your GPA. I see dean's list so I assume it's good.
Also instead of listing courses, describe some actual projects you worked on relating to the job you are trying to get. Include any leadership positions you may have had.
Also, how hard is it to get a job with your degree? I was considering doing something similar but idk man.
Yeah I was thinking the typing thing was kinda silly, I haven't really tried to look for a job with this degree but I'm hoping for the best and expecting the worst tbh. I still have another year so I still have time to build up my resume. I might be able to TA next semester.
Employees want you to be open minded and they like to see that you have had a lot of interests before applying for the job. However, they want you dedicated and focused to your work, therefore you don't need to mention hobbies that look like they might take up a lot of your time. Instead, you can include hobbies or interests that you have had certain achievements in. For example, if you are good at dancing don't imply that you dance all the time everyday, just mention that you have that certain dance related certificate (if you do have it). It implies that you are kind of done with that and now it's your time to work your ass off in another field, which is your wannabe job.
Of course, it depends on what kind of job you apply for. Generally if you want to impress a boss, think like one. Preferably a tough one.
Not hunting since I am currently in a position but ran it anways.
As a tip, always update your resume every 3-6 months even if you are already employed.
Dont really know what job i want. I've been studying Music Technology and finish in April. I'd ideally like to be working as an engineer at some studio, but they don't hire by CV or with degrees, its all done through knowing the right people and/or having the chance to demonstrate your stuff.
When i leave i'm hoping to become the manager of an indoor market (the type that sells fruit & veg).
As a general thing though, what can i change? I've had like 20 jobs btw, these are just a cherry picked "wide scope" mixture.
Everything in your "Skills Profile" is WAAAAY to vague. Many different places, what places? What kind of software? Any programming languages or specific music software (Ableton etc)? Don't sound so casual in these examples, try to give one or two examples like you did for Problem Solving. Also, take out that rhetoric question in Hobbies and Interests.
Finally, take away those references. Everyone knows they're available at request.
just looking for summer internships. don't really have much experience but have taken a few courses that most in my degree probably haven't.
I actually have better experience to put on there now, i just quickly edited it so it was slightly updated. Last time i updated it was for a job at McDonalds when i was at uni. Top kek
The skills profile was done purposely vague in an attempt to sound somewhat rounded. I might just put actual skills i have like this guy did >>654200
Reminds me of LinkedIn - thats a point actually. Is it a good idea to put a LinkedIn link on your CV?
Also is there any point in having an interests section at all? I only put that rhetoric there as a way of humanizing myself to potential readers.
Im not in much position to give advice, but here's what I see just from my basic understandings:
- Drop the first person in your skills profile. First person is a big no no in resume writing.
- Drop/reword anything that mentions offering 'more detail if requested' (your first work history point and references). If they want to know more, they'll certainly ask, they don't need the invitation from you.
- I despise the concept of a hobbies and interest section, but if you really want to use it, rebuild yours from the bottom up, especially that last line. I understand you want to come off in an approachable manner to employers, but resumes/CVs are supposed to be professional, you can chum with them later.
- Your work history has a nice foundation, but could use more measurable results. How many employees did you hire/manage at Eds? What were the results of your business/marketing plans? Employers look for those sort of things to see that you can provide results, not just do your job.
Again, Im no expert, my resume is >>653807, but I know Im getting closer and closer every day. Also, Im from the US, sounds like you're across the pond, so Im not as familiar with their standards.
Again, a very good foundation for an early resume, just need to mop some things up, so to speak.
RezScore gives me a B.
Am only sort of looking, I don't mind where I'm at most days, but the boss is kinda bonkers and can make work needlessly stressful.
Change your objective to more of a summary: what you have studied/accomplished in your studies so far, and what you would like to learn in your potential internship (adjust as necessary for every internship you apply to)
More details about your Lab experience, where was it? Maybe list a reputable lab/instructor who oversaw your work.
Other than that, I see no issue with what you have right now. Lots of white space, but you can fill that with some simple reformatting.
I can make out a 5 at the end of your e-mail and the fact it's @AOL
I'd consider making a more professional sounding address for job stuff
obviously I can't see the rest of it so I don't know it's all that bad but might be something to consider.
Heres an updated version, if i were going for a job as a sound engineer at a studio, or as a composer for some media company.
So i realized I had alot of edits I need to make, just in terms of having the correct info
does any one have any ideas to ways I and rephrase things to a more "results based" style? I feel like so many results are subjective, or I just don't know how to list them...
I guess, I'm just not sure how to make myself lok good.
okay, what do you all think of this version?
I removed speed reading, even though I do think it's a legitimate skill (being that I've spent alot of time honing the skill/practicing/taking classes
>certificates in the edu section? your call, but i would expect it somewhere separate
where should I put them, or how should I change it up? I wasn't sure, so I just put it in education.
The cashier thing was for a special sporting event (that lasted only a weekend) but a went ahead and removed it, and replaced it with a temp thing more recent.
>>How are you going to explain the relative drop in your GPA since your most recent program?
thats never come up honestly...
So make it more results based; so past tense is the correct tense, right?
I was laid off last year and lost my unemployment (2500/month) in november after quitting a shit job in less than 1 week.
I am looking for something sales related or customer service that I can pull 40000/ year from.
Any suggestions on my resume or places I could apply would be very welcome.
Yes. If that's applicable to you. No manager seeing that resume will take you seriously if you cannot provide detail of your previous achievements and how those achievements will help you excel at the new position you are applying for.
Has no one taught any of you guys anything about creating resumes? I don't even wanna critique individual ones because they're all shit.
First off, stop writing full fucking sentences in your resume. No one wants to, and no one does, read that shit.
Second, make them more aesthetically pleasing. For example, instead of everything looking like an outline for a paper you're about to write, make the layout symmetrical. It catches people's eye and it makes it less likely that yours will be thrown in the garbage.
Lastly, if you want to add education, do so, but they don't need to know your GPA for each semester, what specific classes you've taken (UNLESS THEY'RE DIRECTLY RELATED TO THE POSITION), or any other bullshit.
A resume is supposed to be minimalist, and it's supposed to be aesthetic. You guys all look like you've got resumes from the 60s.
This is coming from someone who works in finance at a very competitive company.
No. In fact, putting previous offers on the resume will always hurt you because it already allows the manager to see the type of income ceiling you were hitting before.
Also, it serves no fucking purpose in advancing your reasonings for wanting the job.
>would adding earnings help?
Is this a serious question? You're trying to prove your worth to this person's business and instead of talking about what you did for the last business you worked out, you think it's a good idea to tell them how much you were able to suck out of them?
Ok, I just thought it might help to show a proven sales record, and sometimes it is asked during interviews. Ill keep it out though.
Also, I won 1st in state for FBLA in high school, I wondered if that is worth mentioning on a resume?
If you are going to talk about sales record then put sales record in the resume, not earnings.
Nobody cares about grade-school shit. Looking at your resume, it appears that you've already had some industry experience. So, only put down the university you almost graduated from, the degree and major focus then follow it with work experience.
Also, unless you have actual certifications, delete all that skill shit.
I see so many burger flippers here with 2 page resumes...My father is a senior exec at a F100 company and his resume is one page. He has multiple degrees and 30 yrs < experience. Granted, at that level your resume doesn't mean as much as who you know and you aren't just submitting your shit to indeed.com, but it still goes to show your resume should never be more than a page.
One more question, some people have said not to put a graduation date unless it is within the past 5 years.
I kept mine on there because I think it shows that I have a good amount of work experience for my age.
Should I keep it or no?
gooby pls, come back as an engineer with 12 years under your belt.
What in the fucking shit is this terribad format? Am I sitting in a presentation? What the fuck? Where's the thought process and the logical flow behind graphics?
Infographics are good ways to present material but resumes are NOT a qualifier.
>Asked to speak to local middle school about career opportunities in CS (professor recommendation)
Did you do it or where you just asked to do it?
Use something like
>Spoke to local middle school about career opportunities in Computer Science in order to encourage interest in the sciences
What you did and why you did it
Posted ~2 days ago and was told to condense it. The certificates are an Australian thing but they are legit qualifications.
The rezscore for it. I don't see where I'm using first person language.
I like to think this is decent progress for a 20yo
Gonna look for PT work in either Jewelry or Cell phones (hopefully the former)
Unless you're going for a position as a CEO or a position where certain qualifications/education are NEEDED for a job, just bullshit. Unless you're looking for some shitty min wage job, take McDonalds off there. If you don't have that much prior experience just bullshit. If your father is a programmer say you were a "junior technician" at his company and you did a 6 week internship or some bollocks.
Write in the past tense. Was "house audio engineer" actually in engineering, cause your one bullet point makes it sound like sales. Learn to spell. Remove the dull uninformative bullets like "accepted payment". Condense to one page.
Remove overview. Add dates to your education. Add numbers indicating how many events you oversaw in any period and how large those events were, and the number of people you trained.
This is fucking ugly. And > 3 pages of it? I want to read a CV, not your fucking newsletter. Trash it and start again.
Remove objective. Experience needs to be in bullets, and written in the past tense. RA: what was the topic of the research? What data did you collect, how did you use it? Your not conveying the substance of what you did or any skills you used. Office trainee: what did you actually do that was work? It sounds more like education than professional expereince. Clerk: what did yo actually do? What did customer service involve? This tells me nothing. Remove bullshit time management skill.
Attic: remove the "can provide...", it sounds dumb. You were manager, so i'd expect more detail, but most of your important responsibilities youi've crammed into one list. You need to provide the detail in bullets here. This is the only chance you may have to get that info across, make sure you use it. Warehouse, same thing again, really. Bartender, remove the bullshit like "care and precision", "personal touch", "memorable experience". Don't just say it was top hygiene, say what you did to ensure it. Remove the entire skills profile section - your experence section should be so expressive of your skills that you don't need it. Remove the hobbies and interests sections, and remove the references section.
Remove objective. Fix the formatting, it's ugly. Compress the related coursework to a comma separated list. If you're going for a lab job, focus more on your lab experience if that's mostly what you've got going for you, and you can be more detailed. If you're going for anything else, it would be good to see more evidence of other work skills, and you may want to add something to your lab skills to indicate your ability to work with other people, organise things, etc.
2 pages. Trim it to 1. Too may bullets that don't ive a great deal of info. A lot of your sysadmin bullets are taking one or to lines to say "i worked with <x>". You don't need to say things like configuration, deployment, installation, repeatedly, just give a list of things you administered in a single bullet. Your technician job has a lot of trivial things. Who cares that you proactively greeted people? Trim out anything that doesn't make you look better than average. Same goes for independent consultant. Saying you answered "patiently and politely" makes it sound like you're calling them frustrating idiots. More pointless crap in the last job too. "general assistance" tells me nothing and is a waste of a line. Skills section, add all the stuff you were listing in your sysadmin job, so you can convey it in a concise list, instead of an excess of bullets. Trim the volunteer work a bit, same problem as the other jobs.
Ugly. Fix the formatting. Remve profile. Include job titles. Bullets aren't very descriptive of what you did day to day, and don't show of any skills you may have. I've learned barely anything about you from reading this.
Everyone should listen to this guy.
Needs trimming to one page. Remove the huge block of prose and the nested bullets. Your description of your current project should be in the bullets under experience. A lot of your bullets don't tell me anything meaningful. You "designed... core products". That's vague as fuck. Also don't care that you "proposed changes" for vague thing or recruited internts through professers (it sounds like you hired your friend's friends or something). You need to have concise bullets: the first should describe what the product was, one should describe your non-technical acheivements, and the rest should be on your technical contribuation. Your CV seems completely unorganised, which says a lot about you. I also don't have confidence that you understand any of the technologies you've listed, because none of them seem to fit together, and it gives them impression you touched them very briefly and then listed them cause they sound good.
Make sure you're consistently talking in past tense. I don't know what a graduation assistant was. A bullet telling me your responsibilities would be more valuable than one saying you're a friendly person. "Game Engine" souldn't be caps. Change small team to "team of <how many>". What animation techniques? Did you do code too? If so, describe. If it's not apparent from the store name, what products did you assist customers with?
Ugly. Reformat it more like the guy above. Remove objective. Add meanigful bullets that convey your skills and describe your day to day functions. Newest job should be first. List any relevant courses you did in your degree. Remove bullshit meaningless skills section. Remove reference note, it's always implied and you don't need to take up space with it.
Here's my resume, submitted it to my top choice college and got in so at least it's not complete shit.
Can I use it in professional setting (I probably have to take out the lame interests first)?
Huge blocks of text that I don't want to read. It's also not at all apparent that the left column relates to the text. Remove the shitty formatting and replace it with something normal. Replace the test with bullet points. Remove profile. Put your education in an education section.
Your work history isn't in date order and has things that overlap. You should niclude your job title in the header, so you don't have to state it in the bullets. Also that first on says you worked there for 3y but the dates imply 2. Your bullets could be a bit more detailed. I don't really have a feel for what you were doing or the skills you may have shown. The skills section should simply list things, not be text or explanation. If you want to explain how you got a skill, it should be apparent from the bulletpoints from the relevent job.
ive posted a few threads about my resume fpr a part time 100% commission sales job and received advice to:
- trim BS
- remove 1 month mcdonalds job
- remove education to not pre-disqualify myself with a busy schedule
this is my updated CV, hoping for some quick critiques and i appreciate anyone who takes a look. thanks again /biz/ and i truly will appreciate any comments or comments on changes i've made. i will post the original in a reply to this.
Posting to ask for help ;-;
when applying for a job I feel that I just have no clue what to do.
I have a question:
I understand you don't add a photo on your resume in english speaking countries, right?
Where I live (Switzerland) a photo is pretty common. How would you go about applying for jobs in US/UK companies based in Switzerland? With or without photo?
I'm asking because I'm good looking so a photo would work in my favor.
Better. What's the "welfare & environment"? Sounds like it's missing a word. "Collaborated in a team environment" ...as opposed to collaborating in an individualistic environment? Redundant. Simplyify. Replace some of your excessive use of "&" with the word "and". Change "merchandised store displays" to "merchandised displays", since you refer to "store" a few words later. You've spellt "optimizing" with a z, not an s. I thought aussie english used an s for those kinds of words?
Don't, it'd be weird.
I don't know why resume "reviewers" constantly suggest that an objective section be included. It serves no purpose at all and only makes you, the applicant, sound pretentious as fuck.
If you have any form of prior qualification in skills or professional experience then your history will make you shine.
Applied to a number of summer internships at construction/engineering/transportation firms in January/February with resume and cover letters, haven't heard anything back yet.
When are responses/decisions typically made for May hires? Thanks in advance.
Because someone once told them to include it, and they're blindly following advice instead of thinking about what's effective and what's a waste of space.
In skills remove the "experience with" and "knowledgable of" - just list stuff. Move that section to the end. In coursework, remove the "familiar with" line - that's a skill. Talk about what you did and what you acheived. Experience should be most recent first. Participants for what? What were your organisational responsibilities? What data did you record, what did you do wiith it? How did you raise funds? What was invovled in maintenence and repair? How did you contribute to restoration?
accidentally cropped the top of my resume off, I am a third year student. Any adjustments I should make?
Again, your GPA is too low to have placement merit on the resume. Remove it. You should not be including GPAs unless it's at least 3.5 - .6 range. Remove the objective section. Unnecessary and takes up space and wastes the reviewer's time. Merge all work/professional experiences together and finetune your function in each position. There's no need to separate work experiences into different categories.
Regarding campus activites, you should not be including anything unless you've held significant leadership roles, and like the previous problem that plagued your work section, your job function details are way too vague.
For technical skills, unless you've actually obtained a certification that you can provide upon request, you should not be including general use and proficiency in that section.
>Where is your work experience section?
I have no formal work experience
If you don't have prior work experience, then consolidate your university research experiences into one collective.
Instead of using generalized terms such as analyzed, faggotized, <generic term>ized, quantify your achievements.
So just the research topics without the bullet points?
Also can I include leadership and task delegating skills since my degree has a heavy group work load? I usually get between A and B- in them. I always take the role of group leader since most people are shy and assess the members, then proceed to allocate the tasks according to their competencies to keep the ship sailing smoothly
how would I best fine tune and specify the duties of the roles I have held, I dont want to make each bullet point too long as a description. The internships I have listed constitute the entirety of my formal work experience so I am somewhat flummoxed by what else I should add there. Thanks for the advice though I appreciate the feedback
Was eating lunch.
Bullet points are perfectly acceptable. In your case, go into greater detail into each key note. For example, how exactly did you analyze financial data and make recommendations? What are the recommendations? The reason to be specific is so the recruiter can see the results of your work. Everybody can "evalulate and analyze things," but few produce actual results. Also, DATE the duration of your previous research and coursework.
Same as above. In general, reorganize the resume structure to be Education -> Work Experience -> Associated Activities (RELEVANT TO JOB APP) -> Certifications. All of this should not take more than 1 page in your instance. Cut the crap and spit-shine areas where you excel in. You should be able to identify important points yourself.
Too little info on your work, and too much on useless frat shit. Talk more about what you did in your internships to show that you understood what you were doing and made a difference. Spreadsheet shouldnt have a capital letter. Your leadership experience doesn't demonstrate leadership. From the sound of it, you just turned up and had no real impact. What did you acheive? Same goes for your "community" stuff. Do you really thing the fact that you "played and spent time" is going to impress anyone?
Also, most recent should be first.
Remove the "seeking" section. Where are the dates? Do you have no work experience or anything at all similar? If you're including your research coursework, I presume you're applying to something relevant, in which case you need to give more meaningful detail on how you conducted the reasearch, and you can omit the obvious things - you don't need to say that investors seek gains, for example. Also you don't neeed to put 3 in brackets after the word - the chances of your CV reaching someone who can't read the word "three" but can read the number "3" is minimal. What's the point in the public info disclaimer? In a skills section, you don't list how you got the skills (that belongs in experience), you just list them.
I need your help /biz/:
I'm finishing my clerkship in the next days and then will be employed by a magic circle firm in London. The plan is to apply for an LL.M in the US next year or the year after that. Harvard or the Stanford Technology & Law LL.M would be my first choice (I have strong LoRs for both).
A few questions:
1. RezScore says I shouldn't use first person but all the sample CVs from the Harvard homepage tell me otherwise. What to do?
2. Keep the "(nonprofit organization)" add-on?
3. Provide a link to my nonprofit? Because the URL isn't the same as the company name...
4. The mentioned papers (Paper#1 etc) are mandatory written assignments for the degrees but were not published, is it OK to call them papers though?
5. I have one publication in a law journal and one pending in Stanford. Where do I put the publication when I "only" have 1 and where do I put them if I have two?
6. I didn't include GPA for my J.D. because it's shit (I think ~ 3.0) but grades aren't curved so I still was top 8% and top 6%. I only included those numbers and left out GPA but included it in my Ph.D. because it's 3.97. Is that alright?
7. I included high school because of distinction and semester abroad. Good?
Any other tips? :)
I have two resumes. One for general employment the other for Pharmacy Technician which I don't want to do anymore because now they want you to be certified in every fucking thing and I don't have the money for it. So I'm trying to get work anywhere I can but mainly in shit pertaining to graphics. My resume must be poison because no one wants to touch it when I hand it to them. I constantly omit things from one and put it on the other depending on the position I apply sometimes I just omit because they probably don't care that I went to a Pharmacy Tech. program if I'm applying for warehouse or something.
My Pharm. Tech. Resume has more on it because I lack so much job experience. Freelance bit is bullshit. The Photography Studio was a seasonal position then I got a call back the next year so I just combine the two. I was young and dumb they offered me fulltime and I sort of fumbled around and never said yes. Most of the people there were fired anyway and a new company took over so IDK maybe I dodged a bullet.
I have shit work history and my education is no better. Nothing but shitty technical schools you see on daytime TV. Wish I went to a real college or university. Or at least better technical schools for something worth a damn.
OK, but too long. You need to make sure they focus on the really good things you've got on there, and that means cutting the mediocre ones.
Education goes first, as recent graduate. Remove high school. Noone cares that you went on holiday when you were a teenager. Remove the goalkeeper and waiter volunteering, or at least remove the bullets from them. They're uninteresting. Your skills sectino should be lists, not prose.
To your questions:
1 Don't write in first person, don't even use pronouns. It's fine as is.
4 If the papers are very close you your thesis, just remove them. The point is to convey your area of interest, not explicit titles.
5 List them under education. But if you're not applying for academia, I'm not sure how much they'll care, so keep it brief.
6 Yes that's fine.
Remove objetive. Skills go at the bottom.
You've capitalised almost every word. Are you too stupid to realise that capital letters go on proper nouns and at beginnings of sentences?
The content is mostly OK though, but you could probably add some bullets to demonstrate some people skills - did you work in a team or anything?
What kind of jobs are you going for, if not pharm? I would give your pharm resume for all jobs, but tweak it to show of any skills you may have acquired that could be applicable for what yo're applying for.
I would group the work section together instead of separating them. Volunteer work is on par and equivalent to paid positions if the work is
>shows your ability to do things
>has achieveable, quantified results
Its is out of 4
Oh shit forgot to date when I was editing.
I really hope this is satisfactory for my career fair tomorrow. I'll have to see what the company representatives say and edit it again based on their recommendations.
Also at the career fair tomorrow, really get to know industry types, the companies that are in them, and WHY you want to go work for them. Don't hold a mentality of "I want in on this firm because I want a job a money." You will never get anywhere.

Only a few of these pointers have come to my mind. There are plenty more. Also, if they don't ask for resumes, don't shove it in their face. They'll just toss it in the bin after you leave.
Your CV isn't important if you're a graduate. You can't use past experience to differentiate between them, because most of them don't have any experience. Graduate recruiting is mostly down to the interview.
Thre's no point asking how to improve your CV or even asking obfuscated versions of the same question to try to get them to tell you how to act. You simply have to be clever.
Has anyone actually paid the 200 dollars or any money at all for that RezScore written resume?
Did you like it?
I got a B- on mine which was enough to be best in my region surprisingly but it is very long winded and I can't quite figure out how to get it to not be too personal I looked everywhere and had no I or My or Me.
There is a thing after you upload your resume if its really good it says "post to our leaderboard" if you do it says a leaderboard for your city, then you see it.
To be honest my city didn't have many so thats why a B- could make it still.
Thanks for the help! I removed high school, used lists now in the skills section and followed most of your other suggestions BUT:
1. I included the goalkeeper because I have no other sport on there and it shows I'm a 'teamplayer', no? The tournaments where all in different countries which is nice too, I thought.
2. And the waiter volunteering shows my social side blabla.
Besides, I can't keep my resume to only one page so wouldn't it look weird when the second page was too short?
Mentioning my current employer means, as per our social media policy, I'm obligated to also post my name and conduct myself professionally, since I'll have made myself a representative of the company.
That's what I mean. People fresh out of uni with no experience. Resumes tell nothing.
None of this shows you're a team player. It shows you're able to do things that all non-retarded people can do. It isn't impressive.
If you can't trim it to one page, you're not trying hard enough. I guarantee you that the person reading it will have lost interest by the second page. Reading dozens of resumes when hiring is annoying, especially when some are long.
Who the fuck pays $200 for that shit?
That's why I said that even in his instance where he has no actual track record of professional employment history that he group all of his previous research and volunteer opportunities into a timeline summary like all of the other resumes in the thread.
Recruiters for entry-level jobs know weaknesses like what that applicant has. Therefore, it's especially important to emphasize all RELEVANT previous work experiences regardless whether they are paid or not.
I'm mostly looking for marketing analysis or consulting jobs atm. Does this resume work well for those kind of jobs at an entry level? Are there other jobs where else I should be targeting myself?
I'm studying engineering in sweden and our grading system goes like this (3,4,5) where higher is better. and
sadly there's no grade converter online
I have 3.7 which is considered all right here, as getting max grade on math courses are nigh impossible.
Anyway I'm applying for some american internships, and they all want me to write my GPA in the application. Should I do something like this:
GPA 3.7 (Swedish grades)
and let them figure it out for themselves or should I explain how it works?
The resume I posted here ...
... is for a one year program in the U.S (Master of Law [LL.M]), NOT for a job. I have a job and even if I wanted to apply to one I could trim the resume nicely because then I can leave out all the stuff that doesn't relate to the position. But with college applications I thought (!) it would be different, because all the candidates are pretty similar (especially law students...) and you need some extra-curriculars to stand out. Am I that mistaken?
Not actively looking for a job but I'm trying to get in the habit of updating my resume every 3 months or so.
I have a really hard time quantifying accomplishments and achievements at work so any general advice on that is welcome.
Also any formatting stuff as well. I'm not sure if I need a whole section dedicated to certifications or not considering I don't have many.
Remove the section with the huge block of text. If you have any relevant skills, list them at the end. Education goes first as you're still in school. Library bullets are too vague. How did you improve quality/efficiency/etc? Research job can remove first bullet, it redundant. Third should describe how you did these things, not just state you became proficient and expect them to believe you. Pizza bullets sound stupid. First one is utter bullshit, for example. Superior to what?
It's good. If your intention is to come across as someone who knows a lot about networks for the purpose of getting jobs maintaining networks, you've succeeded. Note that "firewalls, switches & routers" shouldn't have caps, niether should "tier". You should alsw write your work history in the past tense - at the moment it's mostly present with some past. Your formatting is fine.
