Step 1 – Brainstorm

Take time to write down your experience and skills that relate to the position you are applying for.  Also take the time to study each job posting. You have to think of ways to stand out from all of the other candidates competing for the same position as you.  You want to make them think you are perfect for the job!

Don’t only include employment, but also any leadership roles or volunteer experience you may have, in addition to awards, skills, or classes you’ve taken. You will want employers to know about these

Try and keep in mind the employer and job description. You need to show them how your experience and skills make you perfect for the position

 

Step 2 – Put it all together

Now is time to begin writing. There are many great resume examples online that you can use for inspiration or reference

Make it look professional, simple, and clean. You want to make it easy to read and try and stick to one page

A great way to start your resume is with a summary statement which discusses your goals and strengths

Then, list your education. The high school and college(s) you’ve attended. It is not recommended that you put your GPA unless it is a 3.5 or higher

Next is the experience section. This is where you write about your past internships and job experience. Usually this information is in bullet form and you can expand on how you took initiative or accomplished a goal – use numbers if you can

This is where you get personal. You can add a lot of sections including – volunteer experience, relevant coursework, extracurricular activities and community involvement, computer and language skills, and more!

You can also put thought into using a template or a layout, but don’t stress this too much. Your goal is to communicate your experience in the appropriate manner, not wow them with your design

 

Step 3 – Proofread!

You will not be taken seriously if there are spelling and grammatical errors on your resume. You won’t look detail oriented with a resume that looks like it wasn’t proofread

Proofread, proofread, proofread!

Print it out and read it over. Word won’t always catch all of your mistakes. You can also ask a friend or family member to read it over for you as well. Its always nice to have another set of eyes. There are even services online that will scan your resume and check for any mistakes

 

Step 3 – Print

Use good quality paper, and not just regular photo paper. Geographics offers many varieties and styles that are perfect for printing your resume! And our Design Center can help you put it all together!

We hope these resume tips to help you land your dream job have helped!

Ornaments are wonderful gifts from the heart because it is the gift that keeps on giving. It can be used year after year, and it will make the recipient think of you every time they hang that ornament on their tree. These ornaments can be given to teachers, a friend, a family member, or even your boss at work!

A great material for the base of your handmade ornament are these is our E-Z Print Sign Board, it comes in smaller pieces so its easier to cut. You can also use our poster board products if you like, and cut the board into smaller sections, making it easier to work with

You can use a word stamp to get the same effect as above, or even use an old book if you have one laying around

To make the base, you need to form the paper in the shape of a cone like below. Tear paper into small rectangles that measure about 2.5″X2″ Roll the rectangle into a cone, and use glue to make it secure. Each ornament uses 20 rolls so plan accordingly

For the center piece, you can cut stars from a heavy card stock. Our thicker poster board, or foam board products are perfect for this step. The star should be about 3 inches. You can print an outline online to make this step easier for you

Next step is to make the hanger. Use a thread and needed and go through the center of the top point on the stars

Now to put it all together! Glue the cones onto the star. Add rolls to the spaces and fill in between the cones. You can add glitter to the edges with a paint brush, glue, and glitter color of your choice

After you shook the glitter off, you can add another piece to the center. Cut a 2 inch circle from your remaining materials and using a sticker, or similar supply you can add a letter to the center of the circle. Make it pop by painting over the letter with glue and covering it with glitter
