Selling You on Paper




One of the most common elements of a job search is the need for an effective résumé. This document will guide you through the process of creating your résumé.


A résumé is a document that summarizes your qualifications, experience, and education relevant to a job. You use it to apply for job openings and get an interview.

Standard résumé guidelines include:

•            The Thumb Rule: List the most important information on the first half of the first page.

•            The “I” Rule:  Do not use “I” in the résumé because each statement should imply this.

•            Length:  One page is the general recommendation, but two is acceptable.

•            One-line: Use one-liners to keep information concise, specific, and easy to review.

•            Full Words: Do not use contractions or abbreviations (ex: administrator not admin).

•            White Space: Leave plenty of white space so the résumé is easy to read.

•            Bullets: Use bullet points to itemize skills, tasks, accomplishments, etc.

•            Fonts:  Use the following font settings to maintain formatting and consistency.

Standard Fonts                Standard Font Sizes

•            Arial                                   •   10

•            Calibri                                •   11

•            Times New Roman           •   12



Your name, street address (optional), city and state, phone number (with voice mail), and email should appear at the top of a résumé. Be sure to have a professional:

•            Voicemail message

•            Ring back tone

•            Email address


The profile or summary section is a two to three-line summary that matches your specific job skills to the posted requirements of the job announcement.


The qualifications or skills section is a bulleted list of your knowledge, skills, and abilities that relate to the job announcement. Do not confuse qualifications/skills with job tasks and duties. Job tasks and duties relate to activities done on a job, but qualifications/skills are the result of experience and/or education that indicate your knowledge and abilities.

Examples of qualifications:

•            Possess 5 years’ English as a Second Language (ESL)

•            Excellent computer skills including Microsoft Word and Excel

•            Highly knowledgeable in Plant Operations and OSHA safety

•            Bilingual in English and Spanish, both written and verbal


The experience section establishes past employers, the kind of work you did, and your job stability.  Information should include:

•            Job title, company, city, and state

•            Non-paid experience, if it relates to the job

•            Month and year of employment in number format (10/2019 or 10/19) 

•            Bulleted list of job duties and outstanding accomplishments or contributions

Some other important notes about listing job duties include:

•            Begin each statement with active verbs to describe tasks

Example: Established a vibrant art community

•            Maintain same tense through history

Example: Manage (Present), Managed (Past), Managing (Active)

•            Be specific in the description

Example: Led monthly experiential education trips of 12-15 students to IL and WI

•            List significant contributions and/or proven result figures

Example: MDE COVID-19 Emergency Online Lead for all Learning Instructional Staffers


The education section should include:

•            Highest level of school attended

•            High School or GED if no college or technical degree was earned
