Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
I hope that everyone is enjoying the time off!
Now, you're probably wondering: "Elodie, why are you blogging on Thanksgiving day?" The answer is this: my mom is taking the opportunity of me being at home to work on my resume, which is especially important since I'll be graduating soon.
Now, I'm not saying that you have to work on your resume right now (because, really, you should be spending time with family, unless family is insisting on updating that resume of yours), but here are a few tips on how to start/improve your resume!
1. The first and most important tip is to take advantage of our own campus resource, (the Career Center)! Make sure to use the Resume and Letter Writing section of their Jobs & Internship guide because it will go a LONG way to helping you.
2. Take advantage of resources at home! For me, it's my mom. For you, it could be anybody ranging from your parents to your cousins and siblings. They'll help you proofread and maybe they'll have connections that will give your resume a look-over. For example, my mom's cousin is in the pharmaceutical industry, so she can give my resume a quick look-over and see if the scientific techniques mentioned are relevant/worth being on my resume.
3. Take advantage of online knowledge! Certain websites can have really good examples of resumes, or they might just have templates that will make your resume look better.
In any case, good luck on writing your resume, and have a really good break!
