All right welcome back.
We’re onto our final section of this course.
Pre-professional writing thank you all for sticking with me this long and especially thank you to those
of you that have reached out in our Facebook community and e-mailed me also ask questions and concerns
as I explained in my introduction My goal is not to simply provide you with all this information about
writing post to work with you as a mentor on your own writing and also to develop a community where
we can discuss with others interested in improving their academic writing our own questions and concerns
So again thank you to all of you that have been participating through the lectures and also outside
I hope you are finding this very helpful and I and I really appreciate the feedback that I’ve already
received and hope that you will spend the time to give me a review and some feedback so I can improve
this course and other courses like it.
Now we’re moving outside of the academic sphere just for a moment because although I like to dream that
we go to university because we really want to learn and because we’re curious and we’re excited to explore
new ideas the reality is that most of us go to university with the final goal in mind of getting a job
So we need to do some type of professional writing practice in order to prepare for the writing that
we have to do in order to secure a job at the end of our college experience or for those of us like
me that have to work throughout the college experience to be able to find a job while going to school.
So today the first lecture on the priest professional writing section is on resume writing.
So the purpose of a resume is to show your qualifications to a prospective employer.
It’s also to display to display your unique qualifications and personality.
Emphasis on the word unique or individual right.
And finally it’s to help you be invited for a job interview and there are some things that you can do
to ensure that that happens.
The first is through your organization of your resume.
We divided a resume into sections and we do this under headings such headings include things like education
work experience honors and awards or volunteer activities depending on the specific job that you’re
And here it is.
You need to do some personal research.
You can also ask me questions if you’d like I’ll try to address those specific jobs require other specific
For example I’m in academia or an academic world in my job so I apply for.
Need me to list my publications as well as conference presentations and other professional activities
that I’ve done.
And depending on the type of job you’re applying for.
It’s also important where you place these sections.
For example if I were applying for a teaching job that I’m going to put my teaching experiences as one
of the very top sections not at the very end right in the middle right.
One of the very top schools that’s the emphasis.
That’s what I want my potential employer to read first.
The next thing that’s very important is the format.
We need to use a readable format so readable format is vital in order to create a readable format.
Don’t use more than two typefaces OK.
And those typefaces should be one uniform typeface for all of your headings and then another uniform
typeface for the body.
A little note on which headings to choose.
Make sure to use from the sensory source for the headings so things like Arial had a series font for
the body like Times New Roman.
Also choose a font size that is very readable.
So my suggestion is always use between 10 and 12 points for the body headings to be larger.
Don’t make them overly large but they should be a little bit larger.
Can be a little bit larger than the body.
Also remember not to rely heavily or too heavily on bold italics and bullet points so if have lots of
different font sizes font types Paul’s italics.
It gets very very fragmented.
So we need to keep her as a resume very simple and readable.
Also never decorate Erasmi.
You’d be surprised how many people continue to do this.
Never decorate your resume with clipart or other unnecessary decorations like Borders and and everything
else we do to try and make documents look pretty.
A resume does not need to look pretty through decorations and needs to look pretty through having a
very simple readable organizational format and through your own unique qualifications and personality
and a final tipis is a really neat Grilli one for a hard copy that you turn in or submit to an employer.
Make sure to print it with a laser printer on bond paper in other words make sure it looks very very
Now onto the content.
The first of course is very straightforward but enough people leave it out and I find it necessary to
repeat it here.
Those include your personal information include email address a current one if possible a professional
one for example your university email address.
You don’t want an email address like sweet blonde girl 27 right.
It’s not very professional uses professional e-mail address as you have.
Also include your phone number your physical address and if you have a professional page.
Then go ahead and provide that you are L.D.
because while many professional organizations these days
will look you up online any way and see what type of online activity you’re up to.
So you might as well just provide that forum onto your work experience rather than describing past jobs.
For example I was a secretary and assuming that they know all of the things that you did or accomplished
while you were in that position.
Your work experience or your description of your work experience should focus on quantifiable descriptions
of successful achievements and transferable skills.
I’ll discuss a little bit more here in just a second.
While describing those skills described them very concisely so don’t get flowery and descriptive in
your language described him concisely and focus on your most impressive skills and achievements.
Of course they need to be accurate so saw the time for exaggeration and they need to be written and
easily easy to understand Syal and one of the most important strategies to make that easily to understand
is to use descriptive verbs for each point and use numbers when you can rather than general descriptions
for example rather than writing manage sales team.
You could write increased team sales by 48 percent in 2013 so manage sales teams very general.
No one really knows what you did as the manager of the sales team but as you write with an active descriptive
verb like increased and then use numbers 40 percent in 2013 then your potential employer knows exactly
what you are able to accomplish.
And finally let me give you some examples.
I’ve also put the Web sites here where I took these from so that you can look them up and there’s descriptions
and discussion of these examples and why they’re good examples at these Web sites.
So I don’t need to talk through them here but I want you to be able to look at these to see how individual
they can be.
So the one the left through is organization and that’s formatting is much different than the one on
the right but very individual but they include similar key characteristics.
They’re both very readable.
They use uniform fonts for their headings and their body.
You’ll notice as you read through it as well that they use active descriptive verbs and numbers OK.
So you can look this over after the lecture after I finish lecture and turn back and look through these
examples or simply click on these Web sites.
These Web sites will also have links to other tools and suggestions and strategies for good resume writing.
But I’d also be more than happy to look at your resume and give you a few tips on it.
If you want to send it my way.
