When preparing a resume, target it to a specific job and incorporate keywords relevant to that position for online submissions. One page is the preferable length, though two pages is acceptable. A conventional font style, such as Times New Roman or Arial, is best for content.
For each job included in a work history, include the organization, job title, times worked, duties and accomplishments. Carefully edit and review the resume to ensure writing is proper and there are no spelling or grammar errors. Don't include any personal details not relevant to background or the position. Include any degrees earned and relevant skills gained through job and non-job experiences.
