Graduate Resume Standard
There is no “perfect” format when it comes to resumes; however, you can confidently use the O’Neill Resume Standard knowing it is employer tested and employer approved. Hiring managers who recruit with O’Neill repeatedly compliment and confirm that they like the resume format we provide for our students. It is straight forward and has everything they need to know in a simple, easy-to-scan format.
Additionally, we’ve selected this standard format because it stands up best against Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS). Resumes with fancy formatting might look good on the surface and you might even think it will help you stand out in the eyes of employers, but they won’t work if they never get past the recruiting software employers often use. The fancy formatting can get jumbled going through the ATS and either look terrible, or even worse not be readable at all by your target audience.
Tailored Graduate Resume Standards
Using this standard format, the Career Hub has created tailored resume standards for these O’Neill graduate academic programs (dual degrees too!): MPA, MAAA, MES, MSES, MIA, MPA-MAAA, MPA-MSES.
Each tailored resume is a word document so you can revise to specific opportunities.
