By On May 14, 2018 Resume Format
Let me begin by stating there is no one correct resume format. We have included one sample resume for reference purposes, but you can take the ideas and concepts presented here and adapt them to meet your own personal needs. You may even choose to compose more than one resume to optimally present your qualifications for employment for different types of positions. Resumes are created to reflect your job history and your own personal style. That’s right, your style, your thoughts and your accomplishments should come alive through the words, format and finishing touches your resume conveys. Your resume must be easy to scan and interesting to read. The challenge to you is to create a resume that contains enough enticing tidbits to achieve the goal of obtaining you an interview.
Center your name and contact information at the top of the pageand include any credentials or degrees you may possess. For some reason, which I do not understand, the majority of resumes make you search throughout to determine education and credentials i.e. Perry E. Ellie, MA, RHIA, Fellow AHIMA. Why conceal this information? If you have these types of credentials, use them. If you don’t, or if they are less than ideal for the position you are applying, leave this information for your education section later in the resume. For the vast majority of candidates it is preferable to list your education and credentials up front. Utilize Word to highlight or draw attention to this and other key information in a way to match your own personal style.
What’s next? Our recommendation is that the next section of your resume should provide an overview of your career to date. Following a left to right margin line of separation you should have a section titled “Summary”, “Achievements” or “Accomplishments” or a similar word to reflect your style. Bold this and all section title words to draw attention in a cursory review by your reader. This "Summary" section should contain your bestselling features. We suggest five bulleted items which begin with action verbs. A selected list of action verbs are listed on this website for your use.
