Job Seekers’ Roundtable for Thurs., July 9: The How and Why of Best Resume Formatting

Join us Thurs., July 9 from 1-2:30 p.m. in the ground floor level of FOSS (5000 bldg.) for this week’s Job Seekers’ Roundtable on how to correctly format your resume.

Nobody can ever underestimate how important it is to have a good resume. First impressions count, and the first impression that a potential employer will have of you is going to depend on how you present your resume. This is going to be your one and only chance to capture a potential employer’s attention, or for your resume to be tossed into the file of those they don’t want to pursue. And this is where resume formatting becomes exceptionally important.

So what makes a well-formatted resume stand out? In a nutshell, not so much the minutia of every job you’ve held over the past 10 or so years, but the precision and readability of your work history. Get rid of the fluff or “resume padding.” Proof for correct grammar. Make good use of white space. All these tips will be covered and more.

See you this Thursday! Please bring your resume and share some tips over iced tea and other treats compliments of Central Market.

And as always: Good Luck Out There!
