- Make it easy to read: Use a plain font in 10- to 12-point type.
- Focus on information that is relevant to the employer and the job.
- Keep your resume short: In general, a new grad's resume should be one side of a single page, but can run longer if your experiences and skills are relevant to the job.
- Include keywords taken directly from the job description.
- Quantify your results, if possible.
