How To Create A Resume
Before beginning your résumé, compile your employment and educational history, including starting and ending years. If you do not have employment experience, you could list activities or achievements that would indicate relevant skills or character development. Keep your résumé brief and to the point (one page). If the employer is interested, more information will be requested from you later when appearing for interviews or filling in applications.
Follow these steps to build your résumé:
- Open Microsoft Word
- Select File; New
- Click on the "Other Documents" tab
- Click on the Résumé Wizard and complete. The Résumé Wizard allows you to choose from 3 different résumé styles and then fill them in with your personal information.
- Save your résumé in a location on the hard drive that is easy for you to find. If you are using a school computer, be sure to save it to a removable disk.
When applying for jobs on-line, attach your résumé when sending a response via e-mail.
