    Resume 101

    What's a résumé?

    A résumé is a short description of who you are and what you’ve done – a kind of ad for yourself.

    It’s really an important thing to have. A lot of employers keep résumés handy so that when a job opens up, they can just go through them and pick out people to interview for the job.

    Take a minute to look over the sample résumés provided, then try writing one yourself.

    1. There are two types of résumés:

    Chronological: This type of résumé is the most commonly used. It lists your work experience in reverse chronological order, which means that your most recent experience is listed first. This résumé emphasizes your work experience.

    Functional: This type of résumé lists your skills in order of importance with examples of work experience given for each skill. This résumé emphasizes your skills.

    1. Here’s a short list of words and phrases that might help describe what you’ve done:

    Assemble: put parts together
    Assist: help someone
    File: put things in the right order
    Handle: move goods or materials or look after money
    Initiate: start something
    Operate: run machinery
    Organize: turn a plan into action
    Plan: decide what should be done and how to do it
    Prepare: get something ready
    Sort: put things in a certain order

    1. If you need help writing your résumé, visit a counselling centre or a school guidance office. Call the Training Hotline for the location of the counselling centre nearest you.
    2. Your résumé must look neat, or nobody will bother to read it. To an employer, a sloppy résumé means a sloppy worker. Make sure your résumé is typed or done on a computer. Then make plenty of good quality copies.
    3. From now on, take copies of your résumé whenever you’re looking for work, and leave one behind at each place you go.
