Project #53026 - Reverse Chronological Resume for a Targeted Audience

To Create a Reverse Chronological Resume for a Targeted Audience:

  1. Go to your DeVry portal at http://my.devry.edu and click on My Compass to My Career to access all of the self-directed resources available to you through Career Services.* You may do a job search within My Compass to My Career by clicking on My Planner from the top of the screen and then select Jobs That Interest Me from the drop down menu. For more information on how to access job leads inside My Compass to My Career, please review the guide here: Career Services Tools and Resources. You may also search other job search sites such as careerbuilder.com (see table 18.1 on p 507 of our etext for job search websites). For students new to a field, search http://onetonline.org for job titles/descriptions for a wide range of career fields. Then conduct a job search as directed using job titles you found athttp://onetonline.org.
  2. Locate a position you may realistically see yourself applying for at some point in your career based on the skills, education, and experience you will have.
  3. Review the resumé evaluation checklist found in Doc Sharing and access another great tool called Resumé Wizard inside My Compass to My Career to help you build a keyword enriched resumé. You can access the My Compass to My Career Guide above. (Do NOT submit the checklist to your dropbox.)
  4. Review the resumé evaluation checklist found in Doc Sharing. (Do NOT submit the checklist to your dropbox.)
  5. Draft a reverse chronological resumé targeted at the job posting you selected.
  6. Submit the completed resumé to your dropbox by the due date/time.

A sample reverse chronological resume is located in the Week 1 Lecture tab (***note this is only a sample and your resume does not have to look exactly like the sample***).

A successful resume will:

  • Be written for a targeted audience, i.e., the job posting the student selected.
  • Include an original summary or objective AND a special skills section that reflects the student's skills and experiences relative to the description in the job posting.
  • List employment and education history presented in reverse chronological order.
  • Summarize the student's work experience in four to five points under each position held, focusing on concrete, measurable duties and/or accomplishments.
  • Present work experience, skills, and achievements in original terminology.
  • Use parallel active verbs (see page 515 in e-text for suggestions).
  • Not use first person singular.
  • Use appropriate headings and appropriate design elements (e.g., white space, bold, underline, italics, varying font sizes***) to improve readability. ***Note: Students should not attempt to use all of these elements in one document.
  • Make efforts to limit the resume to one page. 
  • Demonstrate proper writing conventions, including correct spelling, punctuation, capitalization, and grammar.
