Creating a Job Resume

The first step to finding a good job is to create a good resume. You will need this before you do any kind of job searching. Jobs like when potential future employees attach their own resume along with a job application because it shows that they are going above and beyond everyone else to get the job. Try to keep your resume short, but informative. Be sure to include the following:NameAddressPhone NumberYour email addressJob ObjectivesWork HistorySkills and EducationHonors, Awards and ActivitiesProfessional Organizations Helpful Hints:•Choose an e-mail address that is professional. Don’t use your nickname or a funny word that is like your name.•Make sure your voicemail recording is appropriate. Employers don’t want to hear a long drawn out funny voicemail of you. It could change their minds of wanting to hire you.•Be sure to include if you know any other languages. A bilingual person is more likely to get a job than a person who only knows one language. If you need help creating your resume remember there are tons of resources everywhere. You can get help from the career center at your school, job program counselors, books from your local library or the Internet.
