Resume Tips

  • Keep it simple!
    The idea is that you want your resume to be clean and easy to read. Interviewers spend an average of 2.5-6 seconds viewing your resume.

  • Keep it on Your Google Drive
    Store a copy of your Resume on your Google Drive and email a link to it when you are emailing potential employers. This demonstrates your technology skills and is a considerate way of sharing your document.

  • DO NOT post an image of yourself on your resume
