Lesson Ten Writing a Resume
What is a  résumé? A résumé is a brief document that summarizes your education, employment history, and experiences that are relevant to your qualifications for a particular job for which you are applying.
What is the purpose of a  résumé? The purpose of a résumé is to get an interview.  Research has shown than it takes an average of ten (10) interviews to receive one (1) job offer, so your résumé needs to be persuasive and perfect. Given this, your résumé must be  user-centered  and  persuasive .
What makes a  résumé persuasive? Persuasiveness is directly related to usability.

What should a  résumé look like? A general résumé should be a brief summary of your experience, so it should be as concise as possible.  Résumés differ from letters and papers, and they are written in a concise style using bullet lists rather than long sentences and paragraphs. A résumé is designed to be skimmed quickly.

Contact Information The Contact Information Section should include all methods of getting in touch with you.  Make sure all information is accurate and current. It is in your best interest to make sure your potential employers can contact you.

Contact Information If you are a student, you might need to include your school address and your permanent address. However, if you do so, it is beneficial to include what dates you will be at each address.

Objective The objective should be short and concise, but it must also be user-centered. User-centered objectives are tailored to the specific organization and position.
Objective User-centered objectives state the organization's name and the specific position title, and they briefly outline  how the applicant will help the organization  achieve its goals:  Objective: Help ABC Aerospace achieve its mission of designing tomorrow's technology today by joining the Navigation Software Development Team as a programmer.
Objective Creating a user-centered objective is important because you don't want to sound like you're using the organization selfishly to further your own career:  Objective: Expand my skills in programming in the software development field .
Objective Notice how this objective does not mention the specific organization or job, and it does not discuss how the applicant plans to help the company.

Work Experience The Work Experience Section is the place for detailing your previous employment information.  This section can be called Work Experience, Work History, Employment History, Employment Experience, Relevant Experience, or whatever else indicates the type of information that is included.
[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
Work Experience Detailing the duties you performed, though, is perhaps the most important part of the Work Experience Section. You must be not only accurate and concise but also highlight those duties that are most relevant to the position you are seeking.

Work Experience If you choose to create a bulleted list, be aware that each bullet must be in parallel form (which means that each item must be grammatically formatted the same).
Work Experience It is also a good idea that you put each item in the active voice and use powerful action verbs.  Take some time to really think over what you actually accomplished for the job, list the specific activities and duties that you were responsible for, and craft exciting and concise bulleted items representing those activities.
Action Verbs Action Verbs give a stronger and concise definition of active roles played in a job or experience. Was the boss of a team of six service employees The job description below uses an action verb: Supervised a team of six service employees

The 20-second Test Try having someone perform the 20-second test on your resume. What all did he or she learn about you? If your reader noticed within twenty seconds what you want employers to learn about you, then most likely you have created an effective resume. If not, try revising information or moving its position.
The Quadrant Test Readers typically read from left to right and from top to bottom when information is "balanced" (about an equal amount of text and white space) on the page. Being able to anticipate the reader's response to a resume in this way will allow you to manipulate information according to the quadrant test.
The Quadrant Test
The Quadrant Test Each one of your quadrants should have an equal amount of text and white space (empty space where there is no text). When your page is balanced, the reader will typically read anything in quadrant 1 first. So, you should put your most important information — anything you want the employer to see first — in this quadrant.

  • 2. What is a résumé? A résumé is a brief document that summarizes your education, employment history, and experiences that are relevant to your qualifications for a particular job for which you are applying.
  • 3. What is the purpose of a résumé? The purpose of a résumé is to get an interview. Research has shown than it takes an average of ten (10) interviews to receive one (1) job offer, so your résumé needs to be persuasive and perfect. Given this, your résumé must be user-centered and persuasive .
  • 4. What makes a résumé persuasive? Persuasiveness is directly related to usability.

  • 22. Objective The objective should be short and concise, but it must also be user-centered. User-centered objectives are tailored to the specific organization and position.
  • 23. Objective User-centered objectives state the organization's name and the specific position title, and they briefly outline how the applicant will help the organization achieve its goals: Objective: Help ABC Aerospace achieve its mission of designing tomorrow's technology today by joining the Navigation Software Development Team as a programmer.
  • 24. Objective Creating a user-centered objective is important because you don't want to sound like you're using the organization selfishly to further your own career: Objective: Expand my skills in programming in the software development field .
  • 25. Objective Notice how this objective does not mention the specific organization or job, and it does not discuss how the applicant plans to help the company.

  • 31.
  • 32. Work Experience If you choose to create a bulleted list, be aware that each bullet must be in parallel form (which means that each item must be grammatically formatted the same).
  • 33. Work Experience It is also a good idea that you put each item in the active voice and use powerful action verbs. Take some time to really think over what you actually accomplished for the job, list the specific activities and duties that you were responsible for, and craft exciting and concise bulleted items representing those activities.

  • 41. The 20-second Test Try having someone perform the 20-second test on your resume. What all did he or she learn about you? If your reader noticed within twenty seconds what you want employers to learn about you, then most likely you have created an effective resume. If not, try revising information or moving its position.
  • 42. The Quadrant Test Readers typically read from left to right and from top to bottom when information is "balanced" (about an equal amount of text and white space) on the page. Being able to anticipate the reader's response to a resume in this way will allow you to manipulate information according to the quadrant test.
  • 44. The Quadrant Test Each one of your quadrants should have an equal amount of text and white space (empty space where there is no text). When your page is balanced, the reader will typically read anything in quadrant 1 first. So, you should put your most important information — anything you want the employer to see first — in this quadrant.
