To stand out from other applicants and be chosen for an interview, it is critical to have a professional, well-written resume. Creating a Career Ready resume can take several revisions – so to save time formatting and ensure consistency, utilize the Resume Builder which is a part of the Herzing University Career Center in Canvas. Below is feedback regarding the submitted resume for review. Please feel free to reach out for additional resume or career readiness support at any time.

Spelling and Grammar
|_| Correct spelling, punctuation and grammar

|_| Appropriate tense for current and past roles

|_| Familiar acronyms and abbreviations only

|_| Uses active verbs and no pronouns

· Make sure that anything with current education and experience uses present verb forms, and any past education or work experience is put in the past form

· When describing duties, responsibilities, or accomplishments, include action verbs such as implemented, directed, improved, etc.


Style and Format
|_| Experience is in reverse chronological order |_| Professional email address
· Make sure to have month and year for every work or education highlight

· Herzing address is fine, make sure you keep active with it after graduation


|_| Describes what was accomplished quantitatively vs. duties performed

|_| Includes university and expected degree

|_| Summary or Profile has 2-3 relevant sentences or 5-8 bullets

|_| Lists certifications, honors, awards, badges

· Include more of your accomplishments, accolades, and specific goals that you met or exceeded – what was unique that you did in addition to the standard duties and responsibilities

· At the beginning include a summary/objective with a brief statement that describes your professional background, skills, and why you are the best person for the position

· Make sure all dates including education points have the starting month and year as well as the anticipated graduation month and year


· Work experience isn’t the same as professional experience! Professional experience is more in-line with what you want to do for your career

· The resume builder is a great tool for getting started, but we need to add a lot more to make your resume proficient. Formatting is ok, but needs to be more uniform and cleaned up. More details can be added for your experiences. Let’s connect in the next few weeks to make your resume move up a few quality notches!

Discussion Questions (DQ)

Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, include a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words.
Successful responses are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source.
One or two sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words.
I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses.

Weekly Participation

Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately.
In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies.
Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work).
Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week. Unit 7 Assessment – Resume Revisions

APA Format and Writing Quality

Familiarize yourself with APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required).
Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation.
I highly recommend using
the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.
