A one-page professional resume is for someone with 3 to 10 years or less experience. It should be concise, show key skills achievements, and make a strong first impression on potential employers.
Below are the building blocks of writing an early career resume.
- We start with your name, phone number, professional email address, and location. We ensure your LinkedIn profile is up to date.
- A Summary or Objective Statement will be included. This is a brief statement about your career goals and the value you bring to potential employers.
- In the Professional Experience section, we list your most recent roles in reverse order. We include job titles, company names, dates of employment (month and year), and concise descriptions of your responsibilities and achievements.
- The education section contains your highest degree or any certifications or honors.
- Skills: We highlight relevant technical and soft skills. We tailor this section to the job you’re applying for.
- Achievements and Awards (Optional): If you’ve received any industry awards, recognition, or notable achievements, we include them briefly to showcase your excellence.
- Projects (Optional): If you have significant projects or freelance work relevant to the job, briefly describe them, emphasizing your contributions and outcomes.
- Volunteer Work (Optional): We include volunteer experiences demonstrating transferable skills or aligning with your career goals.
