Résumé Writing

John Invernizzi, Ph.D.
     This is a basic sample of a résumé for an elementary position.  It can be modified for a middle or high school position--just replace the elementary experiences with secondary ones and make other obvious modifications. 

     This person has graduated recently and doesn't have a lot of experience.  She highlights her student teaching activities and preschool job to build up her résumé.  The résumé will become larger as the person gains more experience and additional certifications/degrees.

      A résumé is a document that contains a summary of relevant job experience and education.  A cover letter sent to a prospective employer helps create interest in the applicant's résumé or CV.  The cover letter and the résumé should be part of any employment packet that you send.

     Your résumé
highlights  your accomplishments to show a potential employer that you are qualified for the work you are seeking.  If you pad your résumé, even a rookie HR person will notice this.  It is not a comprehensive list of your accomplishments.   Make each word count.

     You can include some  details about any of your extracurricular and volunteer experiences, and try to relate  them (skills acquired) to the job you are seeking.  Also, include any part-time or temporary jobs that you have held, emphasizing what transferable skills   you acquired on these jobs, e.g., ability to compromise, ability to communicate effectively. 

     Include experiences from high school if your list of activities is small, e.g., officer of Future ___ of America, member of golf team, volunteered at the local hospital, helped raise funds for the local library, tutored my neighbor's children.
