If you choose to copy and paste your resume instead of using the HRSC Resume Writer, we have a few suggestions that will help you format your resume in a way that will present your qualifications to your best advantage.
- Be sure to include your basic contact information at the top of your resume, including your name, current mailing address and phone number. Feel free to include multiple phone numbers.
- Be sure to include your Social Security Number near the top of your resume, preferably just under your name.
- Do not use bullets in your resume. This includes the use of asterisks, hyphens, plus signs, etc. that could be used at the beginning of a line in place of a bullet.
- You may use a Summary of Skills statement or a General Statement of Qualifications at the top of your resume. However, you will not be given credit for skills or experience unless you clearly associate them with a specific work experience in the body of your resume.
- A chronological resume format is strongly encouraged. Use of the functional resume format is not recommended. The chronological resume format will enable staffing specialists to more accurately evaluate your resume.
