How do I write an effective resume?

Posted on Jul 02, 2016

The main objective of the résumé is to be able to provide a snapshot of your academic accomplishments, with regard to both personal and professional interests.

1. Organize your content chronologically
2. Quantify your achievements
3. Identify accomplishments and do not just list descriptions
4. Begin your statements with action words
5. Don’t make things up or exaggerate your successes
6. Edit, Edit, Edit and Edit again
7. Check your formatting

Remember – An excellent résumé is one of the cornerstones of a successful college application. It gives you the opportunity to provide a consolidated view of your accomplishments and showcase the extent to which you are a strong, well-rounded and suitable fit with the school.
