Resume Resources

Is your resume out of date? Make sure you are updating it on a regular basis and following the basic resume writing guidelines. Also, to really make your resume stand out, be sure that you:

  1. Tailor it to the job you are applying for by including your qualifications for the position right up at the top of your resume.
  2. Begin your phrases with action verbs and quantify (use percentages, frequencies, duration, amounts, etc.) to show the measurable results of your work.
  3. Include industry-related key words throughout your resume, and lastly,
  4. Highlight your accomplishments! The resume is the place to show off what you've achieved!

Resume templates, by major, are provided by Career Services on our web site.

Champlain College career advisors will review your updated resume when feasible. We do not write resumes, but we will provide you with feedback on your draft resume if you would like. You may e-mail your resume and a copy of the job posting you are applying for, if applicable, to careerservices@champlain.edu. Turnaround time is usually up to ten days, depending on student needs at the time of your request.

Champlain College career advisors provide career advising support to alumni by means of 30 minute Skype, phone or in-person appointments when career advisors have availability (usually summer months and during winter and spring holiday breaks). If you need immediate or more in-depth support, we can help you find a professional fee-for-service career counselor who may be able to help you navigate career changes you are considering. Feel free to e-mail us at careerservices@champlain.edu if you would like to schedule a phone, Skype or in-person appointment of if you would like us to send you contact information for career counselors who have helped other alumni. If you would like to recommend a career counselor who has successfully supported you, we would love to have your recommendations as well.
