Is it advisable to include an "Interests" section on my resume as an experienced professional with a master's degree. Would this addition be perceived as unprofessional, considering it delves into aspects beyond my technical skills and qualifications??
Please guide me here. I just want to explore different approaches.
Should I take a certification for my second language in order to stay competitive?
I am bilingual but not incredibly strong at the writing or reading side of the language. I wanted to know if this would be putting me at a disadvantage and if I should take initiative to take a certification to prove my skills. #foreign-languages #careers #internships #evaluating-resumes #resume #skills
Do big name employers mind if your previous internships were not at big name companies?
I was wondering how HR takes into consideration the locations of where their applicants worked at, and whether working at a small company would matter? (eg. a Marketing Intern for Small Company vs. General Intern for Big Company with some transferrable skills and/or Marketing Intern position from 5-6 years ago) #humanresources #internships #marketing #publicrelations #evaluating-resumes

Looking to develop a resume that is effective and stands out, but I'm a high school student without much experience or skills.

Do resumes need to be one page?
Hi, I'm attempting to become an "officer" in a club at my college and they want to see a resume. My boyfriend is a part of this club and he told me that my resume needs to be one page, that jobs only want to see one page anyways. Is this true? The job application my father helped me make it 2. #resume #resume-writing #evaluating-resumes #resumes #job-application

What's expected of a college student's or a recent graduate's resume?
Like most people my age, I have a very sad little resume. I dont have the foundation of experience or time to include a long list of impressive accomplishments, work experience and skills. Most of what I have isn't relevant to part time jobs or internships I apply for and I'm still including activities or awards I received toward the end of high school. I know that employers know I haven't had the time to build up a great rep sheet, so how do they distinguish between kids who've barely applied themselves and kids who have limited opportunities because of their age and lack of experience? Do they want to hear about school clubs and my GPA? Basically, how high or low are the standards set for someone who hasn't really stepped into the real world yet but needs the work experience to make it in the real world? #resume #resume-writing #evaluating-resumes
