Below are sample resumes for some common career fields and situations. It is important also to consider the following information:
- Typically, we see resumes that are 1-2 pages for new professionals. We recommend focusing on the quality of information on your resume rather than the page number. List information that is relevant to the future employer.
- Consider using an easy-to-read and accessible font like Arial, Times New Roman, or Calibri.
- Beware of using Templates. Templates that are found on Microsoft Word, Google Docs, and Canva can be very hard to edit and often change formats when converted to PDF. Templates are often not compatible with employers who utilize scannable technology to “read” resumes.
- Be consistent! Your spacing, fonts, capitalization, and language tense should all be consistent throughout your document.
- Proofread and have a friend, colleague, mentor, and the CREW Career Center review your resume.
- Submit your documents as a PDF with an appropriate title.
