Pro Tip #1 – The Summary Paragraph:

Use the summary paragraph to succinctly highlight the knowledge, skills, and abilities you have to offer a potential employer. Make sure you mention both soft and hard skills in this highly visible section of the resume.


Pro Tip #2 – The Core Competencies Section:

This section immediately follows the summary paragraph and should supplement it by listing 8–12 additional areas of expertise.


Pro Tip #3 – The Experience Section:

For each position you’ve held (which probably won’t be many at this point in your career), include a short, 3–5 sentence description of your day-to-day responsibilities.


Pro Tip #4 – Bullets/Achievements:

Create a bulleted list of achievements below each job description paragraph to highlight your accomplishments in each role. This can be tough for new grads – to come up with achievements, think of how you helped your employer or increased your skills/expertise.
