NACE Grab & Go Content - Resume Tips

Make it easy to read: Use a plain font in 10- to 12-point type.

Focus on information that is relevant to the employer and the job.

Keep your resume short: In general, a new grad’s resume should be one side of a single page, but can run longer if your experiences and skills are relevant to the job.

Include keywords taken directly from the job description.

Quantify your results, if possible.
