Writing a resume can be difficult, even for the most seasoned job-seeker. This social sciences teacher resume sample can serve as a blueprint for creating your own winning resume. It has been expertly written to help you avoid making potentially detrimental mistakes.
Inappropriate Summary Length
Simply put, this summary is too short. A proper summary consists of 4-6 lines of information, and more professional abilities need to be added. The applicant gives very little information about herself, so she is virtually indistinguishable from other job-seekers. The writer should also review this section if she wishes to avoid common punctuation issues and grammatical errors.
Revise Core Qualifications
The core qualifications section of this resume is fairly well-written, but it contains information that should be included elsewhere. Some of the qualifications should be moved to the education section, while other should be included in with her achievements. Moving this information will make the resume seem more professional and organized. Move to Education:
Move to Achievements:
Learning style assessment: This course and a Claymation project for Fine Arts 10 have been posted on the Department of Education website
The information in the experience section should be organized using bullets, not paragraphs. Each position should utilize 5-8 bullets, and the jobs should be placed in chronological order. In some of the jobs, the applicant actually includes information about her students instead of her professional history. Right: Middle School Coordinator January 2008 to July 2009 St. Andrew’s International School ? Bangkok, Thailand
If the applicant wanted to reduce the size of this section, she could combine the first four job descriptions into one. Since all of these positions were at the same school, it would still be concise.
Remove Irrelevant Information
Unless the applicant is a recent graduate, there is no need to include the information regarding her GPA and extracurricular activities. She should reduce the size of the education section by removing this information. Employers only wish to see information about your degrees, institutions, and coursework. Remove: 4.0 GPA Completed this Masters degree part time in two years, while continuing to teach Grades 10-12 Fine Arts, and Ancient History. 3.8 GPA Completed this degree part time while continuing to teach full time. 3.8 GPA, top 5% of the class Member of Recreation and Outdoor Club 3.0 GPA Member of Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship Club Would you like to write a resume that will captivate and impress potential employers?
