Career Objective

A career objective must:

  • Highlight that you are a qualified candidate
  • Emphasize the contribution that you can make to the organization
  • Entice the employer to read the rest of your application
  • In reverse chronological order
  • Don’t abbreviate
  • If you have gone to more than one school include that
  • You can include your grades (ie. Hounours) if you think it will help you (you do not have to though)
look at the formatting
Look at the formatting
  • Bolded Heading, Date and description
  • Tabbed to align perfectly
  • Throughout your resume tour indents will line up
work experience
Work Experience
  • Employers are not expecting you to have tons of work experience they are expecting for this to be your first job
  • Think about what you have done that could be considered work, babysitting, yard work…
  • List your duties and responsibilities of the job, think of what an employer would like to hear
  • Babysitting… what could we put?
work experience example
Work Experience Example
  • My formatting is the same from one section to the next
  • Very Important to make your resume look professional
volunteering other achievements
Volunteering + Other Achievements
  • Keep the formatting the same as with Education and Work Experience
  • Give each of these their own section
  • Other Achievements could be called something else (skills, certifications, awards)
  • Between 3-5
  • Make sure you ask them first
  • They should be people that have seen you work or would be a good character reference
  • If someone has seen you work but you don’t think they will give you a good reference… DON’T USE THEM!

  • Consider the following important points:
    • Layout
    • Margins: 1” x 1”
    • Consistency with format
    • Paper quality and colour
    • Excellent print quality (single-sided)
    • Font and size
    • Length of resumé (2 pages) cover letter 1, references 1
    • Use bullets (not *, , -)
