Resume

Résumé

A résumé or curriculum vitae is your marketing tool. It is your first impression to a prospective employer. A résumé is used by most job seekers. As it relates to the teaching field, individuals seeking teaching positions in higher education will most likely use a curriculum vitae instead of a résumé. See the section on CV for more details.

If you are a beginning teacher and seeking a position in pre K-12 you will usually use a résumé. A résumé that is well written and organized can help you land an interview. A résumé must catch the attention of the reader, yet still be easy to read and to the point.

A résumé includes a “Career Objective” or “Teaching Objective” (be sure your objective is aligned with what you are applying for); Certification (if applicable); Student Teaching Information (include pertinent details of your student teaching experience); Past Employment Information; Related Activities and Interest:

The following categories represent just a few of the areas you may want to include: volunteer activities, professional memberships, honors and awards, committee work, training, computer skills, leadership activities, class projects scholarships, etc.

Useful books are available in our resource library on résumé writing or check your local bookstore. Résumé templates are available in Panther Career Net. You can download these documents and modify them using your own information. This is an easy, inexpensive way of producing a high quality résumé.

Your recommender can complete an evaluation form (see attached) or write a reference letter on letterhead. For reference letters which you collect for your files you may ask your recommenders to address them as “Dear Sir/Madam” or “To Whom It May Concern”.
