How should I create my resume?

Updated: Apr 4

You may be feeling confused about how to create a resume. What should you include? What words should you use? how long should it be?


There is a ton of advice out there, and it can get confusing. We personally recommend carefully taking a look at two resources: Harvard and Stanford's resume guides. They are excellent and will set you on the right path. They include 1). general advice, 2). lists of action words to use and 3). templates for you to take a look at.

Good luck,
