You’re on the verge of breaking free from college and making your mark on the world. Or at least making a real income. But in order to do it, you’ve got to convince somebody to hire you. The first step to getting the job you want is putting together a killer resume.

Your resume should include this basic information:


Contact Information

your full name, phone number, email and address go at the top.


Education

school(s) attended with dates and degree. If you have a strong GPA or received any awards, you can mention those. You don’t need to list high school if you’re in (or done with) college.


Employment

list any previous jobs (including internships) along with dates and a brief description of responsibilities and accomplishments. Brief!


Other Experience

list volunteer work and club or activity involvement along with dates and a brief description of responsibilities and accomplishments. Again, brevity is a virtue. Remember that anything you put in here should help demonstrate why you’re a good fit for the job; if it doesn’t, leave it out.


Special Skills

if you have any unique skills (such as speaking another language, software proficiency, or other certifications) you may want to list those.
