Tips

  • Have your resume reviewed for free via the FLC Career Services “Drop Off”– Having the feedback on your resume will be helpful to review formatting, and phrasing, and help you explain your experience and skills.
  • Practice your elevator pitch – Prepare a 30-second speech that will give the employer information on your background, work experience, and goals you want to highlight. Running through it a few times in the mirror will help you develop it so you can get everything across you want.
  • Dress smart – Keep in mind you are meeting with a potential employer. We would recommend at least wearing smart casual attire.

Template and Videos Your resume should be a story of your experience in organizations and prior work experience. This can be very overwhelming, so we have prepared a template to get you started, and a video series. The High School to College Resume video series have short clips to explain each section of the resume.
