Dear Lifehacker, Much of your advice around resumes is all about getting you in the door — past the auto-screeners and the six second glances. But what if I’m already in the door? I’m being referred for a job, and I’m wondering if you’ve got any advice for this situation. I figure they’ll spend a bit longer looking at it since they’re giving me an interview.
Dear Lifehacker, I’m currently undertaking an internship within the accounting industry. Generally, these are named “vacation” programs in Australia. I’m wondering how I should describe this role on my resume? (‘Vacationer’, ‘intern’ or ‘summer analyst’?) I’m considering applying for positions in other industries as well as overseas. Any thoughts?
Not only is your resume essentially your career summed up on one page, it’s also your ticket to your next awesome opportunity. So, yeah, it’s kind of a big deal. With that in mind, it’s a good idea to have an extra set of eyes look over it to make sure it’s in tip-top shape before you use it for anything.
