Political Science Resume

Professional should resumes avoid run-on sentences and confusing grammar. Use action verbs to describe past job duties and to better illustrate work experience and skill sets. Many applicants begin a resume with an objective statement. While not entirely necessary, objective statements provide employers a rough idea of career goals and desire to work in a particular area. In the objective statement, list professional motivation for work as well as qualities which set you apart from other candidates.

A good resume should list education and work history in an eye-catching and easy-to-read way. Bullet points and borders provide clear distinctions between sections and allow readers to easily navigate through education and employment history. Always provide work history beginning with your most recent place of employment. Limit the job description to one or two sentences. Wordy job descriptions may deter hiring managers from reading any further. Action verbs and brief synopses of job duties and work environment provide more than enough information for hiring managers to understand previous positions. If applicable, include honors, awards, and accolades at the bottom of your resume to demonstrate personality and other attributes relevant to the position desired. A list of skill sets in place of an honors and awards section also serves a great way to highlight valuable personality traits and job skills.
