>>917168 A guy I know has Eagle Scout at the top of his list of achievements because he "wants them to see that". He got a co-op in his sophomore year for his Junior year this Spring, and he got 5 interviews from different companies at the career fair this year as well. So maybe it has some merit to it.
>>917177 >A guy I know has Eagle Scout at the top of his list of achievements because he "wants them to see that". It always goes on. A lot of Eagle Scouts do well by virtue of the type of person to achieve Eagle. It's almost like a fraternity. I've met several Eagles in high ranking positions; they all told me that they put it on their résumés. It's a networking thing more than anything else.
When I was fresh out of college, I made sure to list that I was an Eagle as well as the philanthropy chair of my fraternity. Both helped a bit.
Senior Business Intelligence Engineer for a major telecom here.
I don't have a pic of my resume but basically:
My name, cell and email
Purpose/Intention (summary of skill set)
Criteria - platforms/languages - programming skills - project management skills (say something about Agile & SDLC because that gives HR a boner)
Experience - company name & dates I worked there - bulleted summaries of what I did - keep it at a high level in terms of day to day and major accomplishments - heres a good place to pad with more buzzwords/keywords for HR
Education - where and when I attended - that's fucking it
*** I have the whole thing in Arial 10 point font, except the header. I make light use of things like bold, underlining and italics. My "bullets" are really just hyphens. I have no tables and I have formatting turned off.
This is because I'm a developer. Not an office admin.
My entire resume is an entire showcase in ASCII art minimalism. Or to put it more simply, it shows that I know how to format code really really good.
Plus, by keeping the minimalist approach, it copies and pastes really nicely into those big ugly Web based "copy and paste your resume into here" text boxes.
>>918757 >Remove references >Remove nationality >Change " - today" to " - Present" >Capitalize titles of programs/positions >There's never a need to list Office unless the job is data entry and posting explicitly mentions it as a requirement
Is there any reason why your start-up experience is any less relevant than your assistant positions?
>>Remove references wouldn't it seem like I have no good references though? or do people just assume you have
>>Remove nationality heard this before from someone. is it bad? i've been around several countries an thought it might emphasize the "international" thing. But also might sound tryhard of course
>>Change " - today" to " - Present" >>Capitalize titles of programs/positions nice idea
>>There's never a need to list Office unless the job is data entry and posting explicitly mentions it as a requirement yeah I was hesitant about that, but it seems logical and I guess people assume it anyways by now
>>918766 Get a position at your uni....work study or a paid position if possible, otherwise you might as well as volunteer. Employers also like to see real world experience, even if it is something like McDonald's. Reason being is that uni jobs are pretty relaxed compared to the hustle and bustle of a real job.
You can also put in significant projects like your senior thesis or independent study, but only if it is relevant to the position. Think of those kinds of projects as akin to an artists or programmer's portfolio.
>>918776 Oh and you can totally get seemingly unrelated positions. E.g. you pick up a position at your uni doing IT help desk but you are a nursing major. This provides you with customer relations skills which are stupidly valuable in the long run, especially if you are an autist.
Lay it on me /biz/ I ran it by the career development center at my school before the career fair a week ago and he said this was fine.
Ahh, I should probably mention that I'm a sophomore. Also, I didn't change it to put the version of solidworks and matlab yet, which was a suggestion from a recruiter at the career fair. Oh yeah, and the church has a name, I just erased it though for here.
So what the fuck do I do when I have literally 0 work experience? My parents are well off so I never had to work a single day in my life. 23 atm and don't have too many internships under my belt either. Once I'm done with my University degree what do I do to make my resume look appealing? Get fucktons of internships?
Question: I want to omit the objective from my resume. I'm not looking for one specific field right now. But I hear that a statement giving a quick run down of what you do is better. Problem is I don't have room for all that shit. Is it a good idea to just keep the main information?
>>919235 Try getting a part time job related to something in your field. Its what im doing with my finance degree, I am currently working in a small finance office. No way do I want to stay here after I graduate but so far it has given me plenty of experience to put on my future resume.
>>919235 >>917082 Do volunteer work, freelance, make your own job(yes cutting people's lawns is something you can put in your resume),take school jobs, try to get a part-time job related in your field.
>not suppose to include GPA >not suppose to include internships
Wtf??? Is this a troll picture?
>>920948 I guess it helps but I know plenty people with extensive work experience who have the most basic meme resume out there. Literally if they posted in thread they'd get 20 replies saying it's terrible.
>>917182 It's overused. Recruiters have to search through hundreds of resumes, most of them you can guarantee will be using Times New Roman. if you want to stand out, choose a font that's professional but unique.
Would it be smart to list your previous job as experience if you got fired from it due to poor performance even if it happened a year ago? Might need to find a job again since my year long unemployment is about to end, and my college tuition/project car needs money. Any opinions?
It looks better on a resume and few employers will actually check for a reference. If they do, whatever, you wouldn't have gotten that interview without the experience listed anyways. Continue on until you find one that doesn't check.
>>919403 Reverse the order of your jobs, most recent/current job first (I'd do the comp-repair bit 2nd.) Job chronology is important, and the impression you have is you're a fucking stock slinger, when in reality you're a somewhat self-employed individual who's been running a home "business" since 2007.
Beyond that, what kind of a job are you looking to get? Because your "accomplishments" and "skills" blow for anything other than the same entry-level wage slave work you're already doing. Give us some details so we can help you with your verbiage.
