A resume is a formal document that serves to show a person’s career background and skills. Here is our Resume Guide and Rice Business Resume Template with STEM for your reference. We also have examples on How To Include ALP (Action Learning Project) on Your Resume and LinkedIn and how to place your Alternative Summer Experiences on your resume.
Before you start writing a cover letter, you should familiarize yourself with the Cover Letter Guide. A cover letter is a document sent with your resume to provide additional information on your skills and experience. Here is also a Cover Letter Checklist for your reference.
VMock is an interactive resume review tool that gives detailed feedback on your resume by comparing it to thousands of other resumes competing for similar career goals, and then making specific suggestions to improve your content, format and wording.
Your resume should include MBA Keywords, as this is one of the fastest ways for an ATS to eliminate resumes because they are missing certain keywords. You will also want to include Keywords by Function relating to the specific job as closely as possible.
A great place to find applicant tracking software friendly resume templates to use is Job Scan.
