Name Always On Top

Whenever I speak about resume advice, I think about Elle Woods in Legally Blonde. I wish we could all use pink paper and spritz our resumes with sexy perfume - but that&s just not the case. Lately, I&m getting several resumes sent in that have the student address or phone number at the top of the resume instead of the student&s name. Always put your name at the very top of the resume. I thought this was a given. Make your name one font size larger than the rest of your resume. I also like to see the student&s name in BOLD. The employer shouldn&t have to search to find your name on a resume. Afterall, they need to know that all of the amazing information and experience on the resume speaks to YOU and YOUR capabilities. Good luck!
