Key Resume Tips and Tricks

  • The resume is part of your professional, so it should reflect the same information as your UICcareers.com profile and LinkedIn profile.
  • Everyone is a critic. At the end of the day, it’s your resume, so you get to decide how to market yourself.
  • Be consistent with styles (font type, bold-type, italics, usage of periods, underlines, etc.).
  • A job/project/internship description should have at least 2-3 bullet points.
  • Action verbs must be in the past tense if you are not currently doing the job/project/internship (e.g. developed vs. develop). Otherwise, use present tense.
