A resume should be concise. It should be about one page and no more than two. It should be saved on a computer or USB so that it can be updated with further information as required. A good resume should contain:

  • personal details such as name, date of birth and address
  • educational background
  • work related skills
  • employment history—starting with most recent jobs and working backwards
  • interests
  • work and personal referees (3 is a good number).

Common errors and things to avoid:

  • not being truthful
  • spelling and grammatical errors
  • not asking personal referees permission to use them.
