Writing a resume isn't always easy -- We've got you covered.
Can't think of anything to write down about what you do in your job? Answer some of these questions. We guarantee that you will come up with some new ideas about your job responsibilities and skills.
- What experience, skills, aptitudes, or traits do you have, or think you might have, that could be of some use to some employer?
- What skills have you developed, at least to some degree that you have never used at work?
- Do others at work or elsewhere, come to you for any particular kind of help? What kind?
- Do you have military experience? Provide details such as branch, grade, specialty, discharge status, duties, accomplishments, medals, citations, or commendations. Did you receive promotions ahead of schedule?
- Have you ever published an article, report, or anything, even as a volunteer? How about a company or professional association newsletter?
- Have you ever given a talk, speech, or presentation, or provided training to anyone at work or elsewhere? Give the specifics.
- Computer literacy and related skills: What platforms or operating systems do you use? List software, programs, internet skills etc.
- What foreign languages do you know, and what is your level of skill in each (native speaker; fluent; moderate; phrase-book etc.)?
