RESUME PREPARATION

Your resume is important! Recruiters will receive electronic copies of the Resume Book about a week before the Career Fair, as well as a hard-copy version at the event. Some recruiters will use the Resume Book to schedule private interviews with selected candidates.

REQUIREMENTS

There will be NO EXCEPTIONS to the following requirements:

  1. One page only.
  2. No photos or graphics permitted.
  3. Resumes must be submitted electronically as MS Word files.
  4. The filename must be your last name followed by your first name. For example, John Smith should name his resume SmithJohn.doc (The resumes will be alphabetized by filename.)
  5. The first few lines must contain (only) your contact information, centered and formatted as follows:

    JOHN SMITH
    156 Main Street
    New York, NY 99999
    Tel: (212) 657-7684
    email: smith@siam.org

In particular:

  1. Your name should come first, in capital letters, bold type, one point larger than the rest of your contact information, centered.
  2. Your address and phone number should be in regular type, centered. Give only one phone number.
