Top 10 Resume Tips

The New York chapter of the American Institute of Architects is offering a series of Not Business As Usual lunchtime workshops geared toward unemployed architects. Dana Byrne, manager of talent acquisition and professional development at RMJM, recently attended one of the sessions to offer suggestions on how to make cover letters and resumes shine.

1. Be targeted and personalized. In your cover letter, be sure to mention any contacts you have within the organization or the names of professors or consultants who have referred you.

2. Clearly demonstrate your value. If you are responding to a specific job advertisement, review the description of the role, responsibilities, and qualifications, and carefully craft your cover letter and your resume to highlight the salient points in your experience and skill set that speak to the needs of the employer.

3. Ensure your cover letter and resume are error-free. Be rigorous in your editing and make sure to double and triple-check for grammatical and spelling mistakes.
