Resume Writing Tips

Select the most appropriate resume format. While a chronological resume is the most traditional format choice, a functional resume emphasizes skills rather than experience and may be more appropriate if: you have gaps in your employment history, are changing careers, are seeking your first job, or feel your work history is unimpressive to potential employers.

You can type a professional resume using Microsoft Word or the software programs listed above. If you have limited computer skills, WinWay Resume is the software program we recommend. Students find this program easy to use. Career Services staff members are available to assist you with technical questions and provide pointers at Career Services at Central and Levine campuses. WinWay is available in the library or computer lab at many area campuses on select computers. Ask the librarian or computer lab assistant which computers have the program available.
