Resume Outlines

 

A resume outline consists of the major headings of a resume. A resume outline also provides information for each heading.

Resume Contact Information

The first thing on your resume should be the contact information. The contact information consists of your personal information. This includes your name, complete address with city, state and zip code and contact phone numbers (home and/or cell).


Your name is usually featured in bold font to make it stand out. Include your e-mail address for correspondence purposes.

Resume Objective

Your objective should spell out what type of position you’re looking for. Also on the resume, your objective should target what you as an employee can do for the employer, as opposed to the other way around. The employer is looking for someone to increase their bottom line–profits. Your objective should match the qualifications of the potential employer.

Employment Experience

On your resume, your employment experience should include previous and current places of employment. Also include on your resume all job titles, and length of time you worked at each company. Give brief details on your duties and accomplishments for each position listed on your resume. Don’t include volunteer work in this section unless it relates to the position you’re applying for.

Education List on Your Resume

For this part of your resume, put any colleges or universities you have attended. Make sure to include any four-year or graduate degrees and the graduation month and year. If you just graduated from high school, list the high school you graduated from, along with the graduation month and year. If you’re currently attending college or a university, you can put down any courses that relate to the position you’re applying for.

Achievements and Honors

If you have anything that stands out and related to the position your applying for, you can list it on your resume. One or two related achievements/honors to list on your resume will suffice. If you start listing a bunch of them, they can decrease the value of your resume, especially if they’re not related to the job position.

Resume References

Resume writing has changed so that references are not necessary to put on your resume. However, if you do put a “References” section, you can note “Available Upon Request”. Usually, the job application has a place where you can list them. When you do list references, as a courtesy, contact the people in advance for permission to use their names as references.

This basic outline should serve as a reference guide as to what to include in your resume. If you follow this resume outline in your format, you can’t go wrong using this information.
