  3. 3. Career Center Search Strategically Resume Writing The resume serves as an introduction that tells the story of how your past experiences and accomplishments have prepared you for a specific next step. It is tempting to jump to the resume as the first step when kicking off your search process. This will present you with challenges because the resume is a culminating effort, not a first step. Synthesizing your experiences and accomplishments into short and impactful statements requires complex thinking. If you’re struggling with crafting your resume, reach out to us for help. A successful resume will pique enough confidence and curiosity about you to secure an interview. The purpose of your resume is to answer two key questions for readers: • What are you capable of and what do you know? • How well suited are you for the role that is being filled? A carefully constructed, well-edited and focused resume will create a compelling description of your patterns of qualities, skills and accomplishments in response to these underlying questions. 5 Tips for a Successful Resume 1. Think creatively about experience. Your meaningful accomplishments will come from across a variety of endeavors in your life. Consider businesses you’ve run, projects that you complete, longstanding hobbies and pursuits, contributions you have made or other defining experiences in your life. All of these can be aspects of your resume. 2. Format your resume with first things first. The top and left side of your resume are the most valuable spaces when someone is visually scanning the page and forming a first impression. Use the first section heading strategically to ensure that your most compelling experiences are at the top of the page. To start each bullet, thoughtfully choose verbs that are precisely descriptive of your actions. Order the bullets so that the most compelling comes first. 3. Illustrate your patterns of success. Showcase the skills you have developed through experience; what you have learned in the classroom or other points of exposure; positive qualities you will bring to the work; and a mastery of the language and culture of the realms to which you apply. 4. Articulate the impact of your contributions. Highlight accomplishments and include measures of your success wherever possible. Use individual resume bullets to highlight your outcomes in ways that will resonate with the readers’ point of view. For example, use measurable, quantified results for a bottom-line-driven industry. 5. Write multiple resumes if you have multiple interests. Your varied interests may require equally varied presentations of you at your best. For different industries or roles, change the categories, order and descriptions of different experiences to ensure that unique readers of your resume recognize right away that you excel in areas that are meaningful to them.

This has been seen on resumes, historically, but is no longer expected. Save that space for interesting content. Someone may have to mail you documents or have your address for official correspondence. Keep your address simple. Only include multiple addresses if necessary. This can include major, minor, certificates, specializations, or other degree components. You can use this section to feature your study abroad experiences. A high school section is most used by first and second year undergrads or those who attended schools with a large or passionate network of alumni. Think creatively about how you design your categories. This is an opportunity to bring attention to patterns in your interests or skills. Look at example resumes for ideas but two general categories could be common type of organization, e.g., Media Experience or function, e.g. Research Experience. Use a skills section to bring added attention to RELEVANT skills. Be sure these skills are evident throughout your resume as well. e.g. researcher, founder, volunteer, consultant Duke Career Center • studentaffairs.duke.edu/career • 919-660-1050 • Bay 5, Smith Warehouse, 2nd Floor • 114 S. Buchanan Blvd., Box 90950, Durham, NC 27708 The CV: What Do I Need to Know? Internationally, the terms curriculum vitae, CV and resume may be used interchangeably. However, in the context of academic or research-based work, a CV refers to a document with very specific content and organization detailing the research, teaching and administrative expertise required. While a common application document for those with a Ph.D., undergraduate students most commonly need a resume. Resume Writing - cont.
  5. 5. Resume Tips and Improving Verbs Duke Career Center • studentaffairs.duke.edu/career • 919-660-1050 • Bay 5, Smith Warehouse, 2nd Floor • 114 S. Buchanan Blvd., Box 90950, Durham, NC 27708 Structure • Use the active rather than passive voice. • Begin with a strong, active verb that best represents what you contributed. • Use present tense for current activities and past tense for past activities. • Avoid the phrases “responsible for” or “duties include.” • Prioritize sections based on most relevant information first. • Write section headings based on tailoring them to the position. For example, “Work Experience” becomes “Research Experience,” while another section could be “Additional Employment Experience.” • Within your bullets, organize these descriptors so that the most relevant appear first. Formatting • Maintain sufficient white space to make it easily readable and uncluttered, while still including thorough descriptions of your experiences. • Be consistent with styling and formatting throughout all sections of the resume as you use bold, CAPS, italics, and underlining. • Place important information toward the top of the document, because HR managers often scan resumes quickly. These sections include Education, Relevant Experience, and/or Leadership Experience. • Each section should be organized in reverse chronological order. • Use a readable font, such as Cambria, Calibri, Times New Roman, Garamond, or Arial. • Font should be size 10, 11, or 12 point and easy to read. • Your name should be 16+ font size, in bold, and NOT in caps. • Margins should be in the range of .5” to 1” on all four sides. • Use numbers instead of writing them out, for example, use 5 instead of five. • Use black ink. • Don’t include tables to organize the document. • Avoid personal pronouns in the resume. • Don’t use full sentences or paragraphs to describe your experiences. General Tips • Keep your resume to 1 page in length. • Proofread to avoid spelling or grammatical errors. • Include the GPA if it is a 3.0 or above. • Coursework must be relevant to the position. Irrelevant courses or standard courses expected of a student with the stated major should not be listed. • Evaluate your language skills honestly, using words such as “beginner,” “intermediate,” “advanced,” or “native proficiency.” You can separate your experience between written and conversational aptitude. • Technical skills should include your level of proficiency with language such as “proficient in” and “familiar with.” • A photo is not recommended on a resume. For LinkedIn profiles, a photo of you in professional attire is common. • If printing the document, use white or ivory resume paper. • References should be on a separate page, so don’t make them a part of the resume. Do repeat your contact information at the top of the reference page.
