Here’s a great template I’ve used myself and during my time tutoring/helping students edit their resumes I found this to be the most useful template.
Here’s the resume template!
And here’s some tips to keep in mind, while using any resume template:
1.) Don’t use any fancy fonts. It doesn’t make your resume look more professional; it only distracts.
2.) Your name should be larger than anything else. Your name is the first thing the employer/school should see.
3.) Make sure all the sub-headers are aligned with all other sub-headers, like all the dates on the right hand side of the template are aligned.
4.) Traditionally resumes are no longer than one page, however many employers aren’t as strict on that rule as they used to be. However, you don’t want to exceed two pages and it’s a good rule of thumb to stay as close to one page as you possibly can.
5.) To help with Number Four pick and choose. Some of your personal/academic experiences are more related to what you’re applying to than others. You can also leave out the “Objective” section of the template, if your resume is running long. (This is the rule of thumb I’ve always been told.)
