RESUME WRITING

The Career Center recommends that you research what resumes in your discipline or industry should look like. There are no prescribed formats that work equally well for all employers. We recommend that you review the position description for the potential internship or full-time job and know what skills and competencies the employer is looking for. You may modify your resume depending on what information you need to include, for a specific industry.
