American Style Résumés

Did you know that some details in a résumé that are vital in some countries, are unnecessary for a résumé targeting the U.S. market?

Let me give you some advice in how you should design your résumé in order to get your dream job in The Land of The Free.

  1. You shouldn’t include information such as marital  status, date of birth and identification number.
  2. You may want to draw attention to a topic or qualification, but keep in mind that you shouldn’t write in ALL capital letters.
  3. Keep your résumé tidy. If you want to use a table to organize information, make sure the lines are invisible. Otherwise, it can be distracting for the HR Managers.
  4. You may want to include grades in your résumé  to make a good impression, but probably many U.S. employees will not understand what they are. Thus, you should better change your mind and leave them out.
  5. You shouldn’t even consider adding references to your résumé . You can either send them separately or upon request.

Your American dream is one step closer! Start designing your résumé  right away!
