Let's have a resume rate & review thread.
Lost my job today, how does my resume look? Any advise/criticism is welcome.
Honest question, how did you turn your resume into a picture to post?
I posted the other day with my 3+ page resume, and the sites I found that turn txt/rtf into JPG only would convert the first page
way too much text. jesus. i'll get 500 cvs daily i have no time to read that shiiit. 2 sec glance and into the trash it goes
Dude I'm an intern looking for internship level positions. Also Entry level jobs in my field, at least in my area, drop the whole 5 years experience thing. If I had 5 years experience I would have a PE, then I wouldn't need a resume.
I'm not trying to sound defensive, just you know educating.
I get that, and I was just basically bumping you.
I really dont know why Outdoors gave me a twitch. It is like the definition of feel good fluff everyone hates.
Otherwise, I guess its good. Ive honestly never looked at a CV with less than the last 6 jobs and duties
I'd remove your linkedin link at the top and find a way to fit in your email and phone# in less space. If you have an @school.edu email, then use that while you're still a student.
Put your GPA under your BS degree.
Combine your Work and Additional Experience sections together and talk about the concrete canoe project more. Call the section something like "Work Experience and Projects" or something to that effect.
There are too many bullet points talking about your internship. Get rid of Seasonal. Condense your experience into 3 strong points. Make sure you talk about how you added <b>VALUE<b> to your company. Don't get too worked up about going over details. Chances are your boss doesn't know half that shit.
Get rid of Associations section (or capitalize it so it's all formatted the same if you're going to keep it).
Your interests section: Engineering and project management aren't interests. Your work isn't your life. Put other interests that make you seem like a normie here or get rid of the section completely.
Format the spacing between the Awards and Distinguishments section and Skills. Do not capitalize Eagle Scout.
Format. Format. Format. Get autistic about formatting your shit.
It's standard not to provide references until asked.
To avoid excessive whitespace, put your technical skills into a table-like format it will look neater anyway. Maybe make your name larger as well and add another line of white space between the end of a section and the next header.
Make it two pages. Expand on your big projects, 2 or 3 bullet points. Emphasize teamwork and taking feedback from clients.
Trying to summarize an actual career in 1 page is retarded and makes you look unaccomplished. 1 page resume is a meme
If you're still here, or will be here later, do you have a comment on my work experiences at a boy scout camp? Honestly I only keep it because i worked in a management type position and I dont really have other notable experience, and that job was not engineering related.
I suppose this is the best place to ask. I'm wondering what the best email address to use on my resume. I'm lucky that I reserved pretty much every combination of my name on gmail, and have a personal website. I don't have the domainname for my lastname though, some other guy has that.
Pretend I'm called John Doe, which email address should I use?
As a email, should I use:
email@example.com (no .edu in the Netherlands)
Hey I pop in from time to time. I just got off work.
I think it's ok to have since you were in a management type position and you're still a student. However, once you graduate or if you find another job it should be removed.
Just as before, try to tailor it to show what skills your employer would like to see. Try to not make it so wordy or vague - be clear on your accomplishments and what value your skills brought to the group (same goes for your internship).
Again and I emphasize: make sure you show what value your skills and accomplishments can add. That is the deciding factor. Getting work is a hard hustle, and I failed more times than I'd like to admit before I landed my dream job. Good luck m8
Kept this from a /g/ thread couple of years ago, /g/ found it to be a good example. Hope it helps some faggots.
Need advise. The highlighted jobs are both with the same company, but clearly different positions. I went from helpdesk to programmer. Am I structuring it properly?
How should I structure a different position within the same company?
Please critique mine. I am a student looking for a job in horticulture, plant science, retail, or customer service. Something involving plants. Current college student. Male.
