It is estimated that hiring organizations only spend 90 seconds scanning a resume before determining whether it’s worth looking at further. As such the successful job applicant must make sure their resumes are designed to fit the job for which they are applying. “One size fits all” is no longer applicable to resumes. Bland and general also no longer apply as the information in resumes must be written using action verbs, and identify accomplishments and achievements rather than simply describe previously held positions and responsibilities.

There are three basic types of resumes:

  • Functional 
  • Chronological, and
  • Mixed (hybrid)

 Oftentimes, CVs (curriculum vitaes) may be required.

Using the Library and internet, conduct research on each type of resume and a CV. For this assignment explain:

  1. The purpose for each type of resume, how they differ, and when you personally would use each type or resume or CV (prepare a separate paragraph describing each and how you would use each).
  2. Identify the primary type of resume and/or CV you expect to use in your job search and career progression.
  3. Explain how often a resume and/or CV should be updated (support your answer).
  4. Choose 1 or 2: 
    1. If you have a resume and/or CV, are you comfortable with the format and the information contained within it?   If not, when do you think you should start revising and preparing your resume and/or CV?
    2. If you don’t currently have a resume and/or CV, explain why. Then identify at what point you should start drafting and preparing a resume and/or CV for your eventual job search. 

Make sure you explain all answers in detail and avoid generalities.

You are encouraged to use the Career Resources available in the virtual campus for resume creation and revision. 

Optimal Resume is one resource available to you that offers resume-building services and many other job search resources.

Professional success depends highly on having quality communication skills. Improving your communication skills is one of the most important career goals you can have. Oral skills can be practiced in all types of professional and social situations (avoid slang use, use proper English, be prepared to support any opinions calmly and rationally). However, written communication skills are more difficult because you must be concerned with how the reader will interpret your words. This is why grammar, spelling, sentence structure, and format are so vital to career success. 

Think about someone you know who has been successful.

  1. Identify the individual or type of industry in which he/she is successful. 
  2. Discuss how, in your opinion, the individual’s communication skills have been integral to their success.
  3. Identify one example of how the individual you selected has used oral or written communication to his/her advantage.
  4. Could the individual you selected be successful if he/she exhibited poor oral or written communication skills? Why or why not?

In your own words, please post a response to the Discussion Board and comment on other postings. You will be graded on the quality of your postings.
