Resumes


Though not all jobs require you to submit a resume, handing one in will significantly improve your chances of being noticed.

A resume is usually a one-page document that is a clear, concise summary of all your relevant experience. Resumes work best when they are tailored to the specific position you are applying for.
  • See example resumes to get ideas about what yours could look like.
  • GCFLearnFree.org has good explanations of what a resume is, why you need one and how to create one.
  • You can practice uploading at ResumePractice.com.
  • The Public Library offers free resume classes or you can make an appointment for one on one help.
