  • Hire a resume builder they take some time and effort but I know someone who can do it probably before Monday, she did mine and I feel so much more confident. She charge's anywhere from 30-50 depending on what u already have together and she will require an online chat with u and maybe even a phone call. She was able to do mine that same day for and expedited 10 dollars. Let me know if u want her information, o and she can take payment over paypal.

  • Do you have microsoft word? They have templates that will help you. If you don't, look some up online and follow the pattern. Essentially, you need to tailor your resume to the job you are applying for-- so you might need 3-4 different kinds depending on the job. The basic sections you'll need are education and work experience. If you have relevant volunteer experience, that should be last. You don't want it to be any more than 2 pages, and if you only have a little experience, no more than 1 page. Start with most recent experience/education first and work back.

    Forget the "objective" portion-- everyone knows what your objective is, and you don't need to state it.

    Good luck!

  • A strong summary, however, written in a human voice, is very important.
