Drafting Your Resume

Your resume is how you present yourself to businesses and potential employers.  Because it's one of the first things people see and read about you, it's important to format it correctly!

When drafting your resume, it should include your core competencies, accomplishments, and past experiences.  Make sure you core competencies are at the top, along with a professional summary!

What are you core competencies?  They are general and technical skills, things like teamwork, communication skills, analytic thinking, problem solving, interpersonal skills, etc.

What is a professional summary?  It is a short paragraph that let's employers know more about you, what you are interested in, and what your future goals are.  It helps employers know if you would be a good fit into their business.
