Your resume is arguably the most valuable piece of paper for your career. But this document can be daunting for many. Which is why we’ve created a resume cheat sheet to take the stress out of getting it right!
Writing a resume can be one of the biggest hurdles to actually getting started with your job search. This worksheet was designed to act as a framework to determine what information to include on your resume and take some of the stress out of the process. While you probably won’t be turned away from a position because you forgot to mention your volunteer experience at the humane society, it is true that what’s on your resume can make or break your candidacy. This resume cheat sheet helps to keep you organized!
Why Use a Resume Cheat Sheet?
Think of our cheat sheet as an outline – it guides you along the way to ensure you fill out all the necessary information and helps to make sure you don’t leave anything out. It’s also a great way to keep all your information in one place and pull from each time you create a specifically tailored resume.
What Is in Our Resume Cheat Sheet?
Our resume cheat sheet is a framework to help you conceptualize all of the possible content and information you could list on a resume – you can easily do this yourself and just outline the information in a catch-all word document, but we have created this outline to do this all for you.
Some of the sections are:
1. General contact information
2. Resume summary
3. Professional/Work Experience
4. Educational background
5. Technical and soft skills
6. Volunteer experience, awards, and achievements
Fill in the sections of the worksheet; once you are complete, you can easily use this information to tailor your resume specifically to match the job to which you’re applying and better present your profile. Download your copy of our worksheet here.
