Revamping Your Resume

News

Wilkes-Barre, Luzerne County (WBRE/WYOU) – About 2.8 million university graduates will enter the U.S. Workforce with Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctorate degrees this spring.  When entering the workforce, the first thing many employers ask for is a resume.  There are plenty of resources available for help, like Careerlink.

Another resume resource could be right on campus, like Wilkes University’s Career Services.  Both agree an important element and something that should be close to the top, is real life experience.  Wilkes University Director of Career Services Director Carol Bosack says “working as a waitress or a bank teller and you’re looking to go into a totally different field, all of those skills show you can work with others, negotiate, customer service, they are all looked upon favorably by employers.”  

Keeping it to one page is also good to know and avoid inappropriate e-mail addresses.  Careerlink says video resumes are becoming popular, especially among the younger generation.  They recommend using their web resources if you are looking to get into the workforce or make a career change.  To do so visit www.onetonline.org
