Approved Resume Instructions
Getting Started
The CDO interviewed several recruiters in all three sectors and created a common style and structure for our resume book. Please follow the standard SOM format if you wish to include your resume in the SOM resume book.
Once you have submitted your resume to the CDO for the resume book, you are free to create your own personalized resume. A list of references is provided on the CDO website and several resume writing guides are available in the CDO library.
Your resume is an important mechanism for communicating with a prospective employer or networking contact. It is also critical for obtaining the desired interviews. Therefore, your resume must attract – and keep
– the reader’s attention; it must stand apart from numerous others applying for the same position.
Your resume should:










Provide a snapshot of your career.
Create interest in meeting you – a great advertisement!
Highlight your managerial responsibilities and/or leadership roles
Discuss the creativity you brought to the position, your ability to work in teams, and your problem-solving skills. Present your accomplishments in the strongest possible language, being careful not to inflate or overstate your abilities.
Make a positive impression on the reader in the first 20 seconds.
Be consistent. Font should be Times New Roman. Type size should be between 10.5 – 12 point
Be available as a Microsoft Word document.
