Unformatted text preview: Joe Smith Name should be first thing reader sees. It is okay to use a slightly larger font here than elsewhere in resume. Note: headings can be slightly larger than other fonts in the resume. The majority of the resume text should be 11- 12 pt. font, though. Do not use anything smaller than 11 pt. font anywhere in the document. Whatever format you use, be consistent. Use a conservative email address. Remove hyperlinks. For SOM 301, we would like you to include an objective statement on your resume. This will allow you to most easily cater the document to Net Social. Since you will have an objective, you should not include any other introductory sections such as a skills summary or qualifications highlights for your SOM 301 resume. If you do not have a lot of work experience, education would be the next section of your resume. If you do have a lot of work experience, education could be included at the end of the document. Provide formal name of degree and include the date you expect to earn it. Including course work that is relevant to the position is a way to show that you possess knowledge even if you do not possess experience. If you list courses, use the formal title of the class. For example, Marketing 301 is considered jargon and would confuse the reader. Schools should always be listed from most recent to least recent. Use of bold can make certain information stand out. Be sure that you are consistent in your use of it. If GPA is lower than 3.0, do not include on resume. All dates must have a year and quantifying information: month, semester, season, etc. It is not enough to just include a year! All items in any bulleted list must parallel in grammatical structure. The resume should be easy to skim; this is not the time to write in paragraph or even complete sentence form. If you can speak a language other than English, be sure to quantify your ability. When mentioning computer skills, be sure to specify programs and your user level. 123 Any Street Fairfax, VA 22030 (703) 123-4567, joesmithstudent@gmu.eduName should be first thing reader sees.
