Resume Tutor!

Welcome to Resume Tutor!©

Resume Tutor!© is a program designed to walk you through the steps of formatting your resume. It will give you lots of information about how different resumes are structured, how to write the different sections, and how to evaluate what you have written.

Resume Tutor!© won't write your resume. It is much more important for people to learn how to put resumes together than to actually do it for them. Resume Tutor! will provide examples of how the information could look.

Remember, “one size” does not fit all when it comes to resumes. Depending on the type of position for which you are applying, your experience and education, your work history, and your personal achievements, you will find that different formats may be more appropriate to use. You may even use two or three resumes regularly, depending on how you wish to present your information.
