College Resume Dos

Are you a recent college graduate who is getting ready to enter today's competitive employment market?  If so, then you will definitely want to make sure that you have a great college resume as this will help you to stand out from the rest of the job seeking crowd.  There is no need to worry if you are not quite sure how to go about doing this, as I will be more than happy to help you!

Do be honest on your resume.  You may be tempted to lie about certain things on your resume in order to try to make it more appealing to potential employers.  However, I would strongly encourage you to not do this!  Not only because doing this would be morally wrong but also because if person who was considering hiring you somehow finds out that you lied about something on your resume such as your actual work experience or about where you really went to college, then it is almost certain that they will not hire you.

Do double check to make sure that your resume is free or spelling or grammatical errors.  There are countless people who have been passed over for job openings due to having submitted resumes that contained these types of errors.  Making a good first impression with prospective employers is extremely important.  Therefore, you want to be absolutely sure that your resume is free of any errors before you go ahead and submit it.  It is always a good idea to double or even triple check your resume before sending it out to employers.  Also, if you can have a friend or family member look over your resume that would be even better as sometimes other people will catch mistakes that otherwise would have been overlooked.
