Resume Tip: Only Put What’s Best

When composing your resume, don’t feel the need to list every single one of your experiences if they don’t relate to the position you are applying for. Instead, imagine your resume as a way of marketing yourself to a company. This way, you can decide which experiences of yours are the most important and relate to your desired position.

For example, if you are applying for an internship at the Sanford hospital in Fargo, it would be great to have on your resume that you worked as a CNA and took part in a medical-based club at your school. On the other hand, you would not need to list that you were part of your school’s fishing club since it does not have as many similarities with your desired medical position.

Keep in mind that you know what is best about your experiences since you are the one who partook in them! Stick to what you feel confident about yourself and list things that can show off your skills and assets!
