Developing your resume

5 tips for success

  • no need to include personal details that are not relevant e.g. age, marital status, religion, children etc.
  • 3 pages maximum with plenty of white space
  • use dot points rather than paragraphs of text
  • tailor your resume – it is a marketing document not the story of your life - include the most relevant information first
  • include a skills section and highlight the transferable skills you have developed from employment, volunteer work, university, extracurricular activities etc.
