Students must attach the Job Advertisement / or Job Description (PDF Version Only - NOT THE URL / HYPERLINK), since without it peers and instructors cannot judge audience expectations. The resume should be ordered in a way that best responds to the potential employer's needs and is aligned to the Job Description.

Bullet points should list the greatest accomplishment first, and then others in descending order. A "Result" is required for each job / position held (i.e., from your three (3) CAR Stories (Challenge, Action, Results). They should succinctly offer significant quantitative and qualitative details that clearly distinguishes the candidate, and highlight his / her experience and accomplishments -

The resume should be one full page in length. If experience warrants a second page is optional. No hanging sentences (i.e., less than 5 sentences on page 2).

Absolutely no errors of syntax, grammar, consistency, or tense. Errors in consistency (in spacing, parallel form, layout, capitalization, etc.) are especially prevalent. General sloppiness or failure to adhere to generally accepted principles (such as using active verbs) are also considered.

Assignment lateness, non-submission and/or not adequately following directions are factored into the assignment grade.
