A resumé represents your skills, experience, and education. It's also a potential employer's first impression of you. Make your resumé accurate, easy to read, laid out clearly, and free of typos or grammar errors.
Ask a librarian in the Block Center for assistance in using any of these tools. Here are a few other suggestions:
Whether you are Using WinWay Resumé, Open Office, or Microsoft Word, be sure to save your work when you are finished, either on a jump drive or disk (at the Library), or on your hard drive (at home). You will want to submit this résumé along with your job application.
Winway Resumé (on the Block Business and Career Center computers) has a video guide with resumé-writing tips. The Library also offers three databases (accessible remotely with a Kansas City Public Library card) which offer guidance on creating a resumé: Job & Career Accelerator , Career Insider , and JobNow . Please ask one of the librarians in the Business Center for assistance in using these resources.
