Sample Resume Critique

Dear Ronald ~

Given your superior academic qualifications, I chose a "Professional" format for your new resume. This style is what business executives most often use. It employs the Times New Roman font resulting in an elegant, uncluttered document that hiring managers and admissions directors find aesthetically pleasing.

I began your new resume by centering your name and increasing the font size so that it would stand out from the rest of the text. I then placed your most important contact information (phone number and email) flush left and flush right, respectively. Now, an admissions director can easily locate this data.

In the body of your new resume, I began with a Qualifications Summary. Whereas many of your contemporaries will opt for an Objective, I advise against it.

An Objective simply states what you want, while a Qualifications Summary goes further. It offers an admissions director keen insight into what you have to offer the targeted school. As a bright young person, who's obviously headed for success, you can well understand the power of placing someone else's needs above your own.

In this brief summary, I describe you as "Academically gifted.," then list your strengths in math and physics. I next wrote of your stellar performance in the SAT and that you have been chosen to be class Valedictorian.

The following subheading is entitled, "Academics." Here, I listed each of the schools you attended and what you achieved, making certain to employ adequate white space so that the data can be easily read.

The final section of your new resume is your Professional Experience. Although it doesn't relate to your career goal of math and physics, it does show additional industry on your part.

Your new resume is quite powerful in organization and appearance. All decisions to modify data were in keeping with the guidelines and standards of the Professional Association of Resume Writers (PARW).

It was a pleasure serving you, Ronald. Best of luck in your college years.
