Sample Resume | How to Write an Effective Resume

4. Work Experience: 

This is one of the most important content areas on your resume wherein details become a priority. Carefully review your previous positions and accurately describe them.

  • Your full-time work experience,
  • Your part-time work experience,
  • Your non-paid experiences such as Internships, community service positions and some undergraduate leadership positions.

Consider asking yourself the following questions to be able to come up with the most important details:

  • What were your job responsibilities?
  • What skills did you develop?
  • What decisions did you make?
  • Did you produce any written documents or reports?
  • Can you quantify the results of your work?
  • What were your major accomplishment(s)?

Please take note:

Read the job offered description and select your experiences that highlight your relevant skills. Your experiences should aim at the employer’s needs and how these make you fit for the job content and functions.


5. Co-Curricular Activities:

Your involvement in organizations can demonstrate a span of background that is attractive to many employers. Include those that highlight a desirable skill, interest, or leadership trait.

For example, professional certifications and affiliations


6. Skills:

List down all the relevant skills that you possess:

  • Language proficiency (i.e. Proficient in English and Filipino, written and verbal),
  • Computer knowledge (i.e. use of various computer applications)

Be honest about your proficiency in any of the skills you listed. Your interviewer might ask you to elaborate or demonstrate them and it’s not good if you’re not able to perform with the level that you claim to be.


7. Interests:

Listing your interests can help spark conversation with an interviewer to get to know you better. List interests that distinguish you, catch the eye of the recruiter, or demonstrate a trait you know the employer will value.
