  The Curriculum Vitae or Resume is a two-minute commercial about you.

  It will not get you a job … it may get you an interview

  WHAT IS A RESUME?

  · A summary of your work related information

  WHAT IS A RESUME FOR?

  The employer wants to receive a concise, honest & relevant summary of you. From reading the resume the employer wants to know:

  · What are the skills and personal qualities of this applicant?

  · Can this applicant do the job?

  · Will this applicant fit in?

  You want to produce a document that makes you look as good as possible. At the end of reading the resume you want the employer to:

  · Give you an interview (and after that )

  · Give you a job

  STYLES OF RESUMES

  The Chronological Resume (see example):

  · Is the most common and conservative form of presentation

  · Is often preferred by small to medium sized organisations

  · Arranges your experience and education in reverse chronological order

  · Is good for demonstrating your growth and continuity in a single profession

  · Is most suited to people who have not had long periods of unemployment

  The Functional Resume (see example) :

  · Organises the job-related aspects of your background by the relevant functions you performed

  · Headings relate more to your skills and competencies than employers or job titles

  · Indicates that you are capable of making a significant change in your career

  · Is well suited to students who have gained valuable experience through a number of unrelated jobs and courses

  · Uses a common resume style, with which most employers are familiar and feel somewhat comfortable

  · Is often preferred by large organisations

  · Eliminates repetition of job duties

  · Camouflages undesirable characteristics such as; lack of career progress or continuity, job hopping, lengthy/frequent unemployment, lack of required experience/education, age

  The Academic Resume:

  · Emphasises academic qualifications, articles published, books written (if any), conference papers delivered, professional development

  · Suited to academic staff or post graduate students seeking an academic position

  The Imaginative Resume:

  This style is most effective for people who are seeking employment in a field, which demands creativity and individuality, such as graphic design, creative writing or marketing. Some employers however prefer a more conservative resume style. You should research your companies thoroughly to see if they are open to creative styles. This type of resume acts as a mini-portfolio and can be impressive if well-designed.

  The Combination Resume:

  As there is no absolute right or wrong in resume writing, you can combine the styles in any way which makes your particular background look the best

  SOME USEFUL TIPS FOR A GOOD RESUME

  · There is no one optimal style or format

  · Match the resume style to the company/position you want:

  Conservative company… conservative resume
