Smile How to write Student Resume

In that case you add some points in resume like, Objective, Personal Contact Details, Key Skills , Educational Qualification, Eligibility Qualifications, Experience, Any References. By adding these points your resume should be good.

best thing to do is cut and paste. yep, look on line at other jobs posted in the area in the same field. Cut the qualifications of the job at and paste a bunch of them on a blank document, get about 10 if you can. Than pick and choose the qualifications you have from the list and place them in your resume. This way when the computers or managers look it over it has all the key words and lingo they are looking for.

I just went through the week long transition class for the military. We spent a lot of time on resumes, there are multiple types of resumes and it isn't so cut and dry.

Since he is going for a specific job, I would go with a targeted resume..

Another option is to do a skills oriented or functional resume. I used this type when looking for auto tech jobs. A lot of service managers don't care where you've been, but care a lot about what you can do. I even added a place for all my specialty and diagnostic tools! If you want I can email you mine or help you make one. I love doing them.

Now that I own my own shop, this is the type of resume I would also find most helpful.

But if you're looking for a different type of job, the standard chronological format (the kind most have shown you here) may be best.

^ I agree with Dee. My fulltime job is in Human Resources, what managers want to see is skills, accomplishments and accolades. No opinions of yourself, cold hard facts. (i.e. Achieved best company rating in inventory control for years 2010 and 2011, or reduced warehouse downtime by 10%). These should be listed for at least the last 2-3 positions you have held, unless your last position was for 10 years or greater.

WHat can you do for this company? Managers are tired of hearing "self starter, hard worker, loyal employee, ass kisser", all resumes say this and not everyone has these qualities.

#1 rule, be honest. If you lie to me to get the job, I have no doubt you will lie to keep your job. Integrity is #1.

Make certain your skills listed are relevant to the job, I don't care about how many baby sitting jobs you've had if you are applying for a delivery job. Furthermore, on the subject most delivery companies will want to see a DMV report that you can obtain from most DMV offices for $5. This will include any moving violations you have had in the last 5 years. I recommend he include this with his application, as long as his record is clean he will have shown to be proactive. Also find out if there are any other requirements fo the position, and obtain proof you have/can obtain these requirements.

Tell him Good luck!
