tips for peace corps resume

A resume is a document that includes a summary of your accomplishments, education, and other qualifications for the job for which you are applying. The peace corps website offers tips on how to write your peace corps resume to maximize the chances of being selected.

The first tip is to tailor your resume to the specific position you are applying for in the country of service. For example, if you are applying as an English teacher in Uganda then highlight any teaching experience or training that pertains directly to teaching English as a second language in Uganda.

Another tip is to highlight your character traits. A good resume will emphasize your reputation for leadership, confidence and ability to work well with others.

The final tip is to be concise and not include every detail of your life in one document. A good resume will also use language that is simple and easy to understand, so focus on a few central points that you want the person reading it to remember.

1. Tailor your resume to the job you are applying for in the country of service.

2. Highlight your character traits as much as possible and make them convincing. This will help you stand out from other applicants and make it easier for the recruiter to select you over others in a competitive field.

3. Showcase your experiences and training, but avoid including too many details about all that went on in the past, or all that you have done, especially if that is not relevant to the specific position being applied for.

4. Be concise. Your resume should be focused on one or two key points, and do not include unnecessary details.

5. Avoid writing your resume in the third person, since it will only serve to overwhelm the person reading it with too much information and make them wonder if you are trying to be too impressive or arrogant. Write your resume from the perspective of someone who is reading it for the first time, a perspective that can help you make more concise and effective points about yourself.
