Don't be scared! Resumes can be difficult to create. What you will find is that there is no "right" or "only" way for a resume to look. What matters the most is the content. A standout resume can put you ahead of your competition, especially if it is preceded by a stellar cover letter. See an example of each below. If you feel you need additional help, schedule an appointment with us.
