I did originally, but I've been told that it needs some adjustments. Maybe someone that's good at writing resumes could give a few pointers.

I believe there was a thread in here about resumes or something similar.

Try searching for it.

I wrote my own resume. We have to take a Professional Development class at my University, they teach us everything in that.

Yes, I wrote my own resume. It's about to get beefed the hell up after this summer with a B.S., a couple more interns, and a certification though.

I took my roommates resume (we're in the same field) removed some of the more dangerous swells
And added some of my own personal skills.

Hes actually attracted interviews with his resume so I thought using it as a base would better my chances.

I'm actually really good with this stuff and I've written whole guides on NT before (need to archive this stuff)

I'll write a nice, thought out one combining my personal experiences, what recruiters have told me and so on (by the end of the week, probably bywednesday).



btw, college kids, your school should have a career resource department or something like that, they should have free resume critiquing.

i know that, but he's asking did you write your own resume? duh, you're the only one that should. they can help you but in the end it's yourresume, so you decide what you put on it, and what not. besides, the career center will only give you advice, not write it for you

Ok,Did you "revise/ structure" your own resume.

I did my own, with a couple pointers from my school counselors. However, all the words and structure are mine, and I haven't had an issue with it so far.
