>>1041969 General Tips: 1.) Less is more. Don't go with fancy graphics or colors and shit unless graphic design / art is part of the position. Stay concise and don't post walls of text. Keep formatting neat and minimalist if you want columns / lines / etc.
2.) Keep it to one page unless the position is executive / academic / scientific.
3. Write the resume with an expectation that the average HR worker / business manager will spend <15 seconds looking at it and probably won't see the bottom half unless there is information on there they are specifically interested in.
Put the most relevant sections (or what you want to emphasize) at the top / middle.
4. Proofread and edit. Nothing gets a resume thrown out faster than stupid shit like formatting problems, typos, looking like it was made in 5 minutes using Word defaults, etc.
5. Get a second pair of eyes to critique your resume. There is probably silly shit you didn't think about because you're socially retarded (as shown by posting on 4chan).
6. Your resume is most likely the first impression with an employer. Try not to fuck it up. Tailor the resume to each job if you're applying for multiple types of positions.
Also, don't even mention references at all. If you really think they'll want to have references, mention that "references are available upon request" in the cover letter.
Most places don't ask for references anymore because they know most people lie on those things. The only jobs that use them are out of touch boomers working as the hiring manager. Just work on your cover letter, and even that isn't being read by a lot of hiring managers these days. Too many lazy managers.
After my past two internships i asked my managers to write me up a reference letter or a 'letter of recommendation'. I mainly apply for jobs via company online portals like taleo. Usually theres an option to upload additional documents and i'll just upload my reference letters in there, and if they want to read them they can. My previous managers details are on the letter so if they want to contact them they can.
