你能缝或修一个纽扣吗?

如果你回答“不”,you might be a millennial.

survey from the University of Missourifinds baby boomers are much better at sewing and even doing laundry than we are.OK,sure.Maybe we aren't perfect in the life skills department.But we never had "家庭电子商务“like our parents and learned to use a needle and thread by age 13.I blame the school board.

我帮不了你缝扣子,but I don't want our generation to also fall behind in the job market.这就是为什么我创建了一个有效的年轻职业简历模板。在我看来,this one will get the job done.

为什么有效的简历模板?

Three reasons:

1.The resume is one page long and only includes the most essential information.

2。它使用硬数字和具体细节来描述工作经验。

3.It demonstrates how the person is aproblem solver.

以下简历适用于在筹款/发展方面有三年工作经验的人。通读一遍,然后在底部查看每个部分的解释。

The Explanation

You might think "I dunno.This resume doesn't feel very long."你是对的。

Here's the deal with resumes: you don't earn extra credit when you include a ton of information.事实上,a wordy resume that spills onto two or three pages hurts you.这是因为雇主要么不阅读整个文件,要么无法辨别最重要的部分。

简历,it's not about including everything.关键在于包括正确的事情。

Here's a section-by-section breakdown.

Introductory Lines

I see too many resumes where the opening "mission statement"或者引言是一个巨大的段落。Give the employer two sentences on your career to this point.You may need to adjust the description depending on the industry or job.记住观众和读者应该知道什么。

Bio Information

Standard stuff with your name,email,电话和地址。The two wrinkles are yourLinkedIn配置文件and a new idea called a "个人标签."With a personal hashtag,你可以在Twitter上分享你最好的东西,就像在线简历一样。

技能

In the Skills section,一切都是为了实用,技术能力。Stay away from "skills"比如“出色的时间管理”。这很重要,当然,但在简历上,雇主需要知道你在工作中能做些什么。

That's why John Doe,谁想在发展/筹资方面获得新的职位?明确他对筹款和电子营销工具有很强的指挥能力。现在老板知道约翰能处理,例如,fundraising campaigns on popular crowdfunding sites.That information is more valuable than if John claims he's a "fast worker."

经验

简洁细节是关键。请注意,约翰如何解释每个组织的工作性质,但不要太长时间地停留在这一点上。

一个团队的一部分,每年为癌症研究筹集超过800万美元。

Cancer research,800万美元。知道了。Moving on.

Then,he offers two bullet points that focus on hard numbers and his ability turn challenges into opportunities.

超过四个月,led a team of six people to digitize over 2,000 financial documents and create a more streamlined fundraising process.

为开幕式“Come Play,密尔沃基一个500多人的鸡尾酒会和募捐会,超过预期,带来35万美元。

The hard numbers:

  • Four months
  • 六人小组
  • 2000财务文件
  • 500多人鸡尾酒会和筹款会
  • $350,000

Problem solving:

  • 将该组织从纸面组织转变为数字组织,使其在筹资方面更具竞争力。
  • 在鸡尾酒会上采用了全新的理念,并在第一年取得了成功

Affiliations

约翰是这项工作和他的行业相关的两个组织的成员。So he lists them.他还确保拼写出任何缩写,并且不假定读者知道它们的含义(筹款专业人员协会而不是“AFP”)。

教育类

Education goes at the bottom of a resume.你的技能和工作经验比上大学更重要。

即使这是一所令人印象深刻的学校。即使你的GPA是4.0。Deeper explanation here.
