Necessary Components of a Server Resume
Keep in mind that the summary statement that starts off your resume and serves (pun intended) to make your prospective employer feel welcomed and comfortable about giving you a call back and should tell him or her how hiring you would be good for business. The skills section should list 3-7 skills in each of the two or three main categories that were mentioned in your summary statement -notice how this is done in the Server Resume Example. In addition, you have to show that you can handle responsibility and are not afraid to work with other people to plan events and reach team goals. The work experience section should be recent and include any paid or volunteer jobs that you have had that relate to the job you are applying for (include internships especially if you are applying for an entry-level position).
4 Resume Don’ts
•Don’t focus on limiting your resume to one page. Show that you are competent and, at the same time, open to feedback and learning ways to improve how you work and to reach the goals of the overall business faster.
•Don’t write over two pages. at the same time, employers usually take about six seconds to review each resume, so your one or two pages should be kept brief and to the point.
•Don’t include references. employers usually reserve their request for references after they have contacted you.
•Don’t jump to different verb tenses within the same section or mix noun and verb phrases. you want your resume to read as smoothly as possible.
