Format of Resumes

On your resume, your name should be the first thing on the page, centered at the top, with your address and phone number directly underneath. The rest of your resume should be divided into distinct sections with appropriate headings (in capital letters and either boldface or italicized) and should be lined up on the left margin. Skip lines between each entry.

The choice of headings differs from person to person, but it is a good idea to include the following in this order:
WORK EXPERIENCE (can be divided into professional and volunteer experience)

You need to demonstrate your qualifications by describing your responsibilities in detail.Also include information such as making the Dean’s List, being scholarship chairperson for your fraternity or sorority, or volunteering for the Special Olympics, which could go under HONORS AND ACTIVITIES, while your knowledge of specific computer systems and software packages would fall under the SPECIAL SKILLS heading..
