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!

Here is another great handmade holiday wreath idea that is great for older kids!

First you need toilet paper rolls – about 20 of them. You will have to paint them entirely green. Once dry you will cut them into pieces as pictured below. You will need to use hot glue in the center to hold them together. You are going to put together two wreaths – one being larger than the other. Form them into a circle, and begin securing them with hot glue. You will glue the smaller wreath on top of the larger one

The holidays are fast approaching and everyone has already begun to think about what they want to buy for presents, or they have already started their holiday shopping. Today we are going to show you a great idea for a handmade gift that can be created in so many ways – we will show you how to made a handmade ornament. After all, isn’t it better when it comes from the heart?

 13-paper-glitter   (Inspiration from That’s My Letter blog)

 

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

The last step is to hot glue your letter to the center of the ornament and you have your handmade ornament gift! Super easy and I bet you already have all these materials in your home!

Light up your home with a new twist on the traditional! Hanukkah is just around the corner – and this craft is one you and your kids will love! The possibilities are endless with this handmade menorah project – and you will be sure to find one to suit your style.

hanukkah-menorah-crafts-kids

 

Here are the basic materials to make a handmade menorah:

- paper

- coloring utensils

- scissors

- glue

- craft sticks

- paint or markers

- toilet paper rolls / paper towel rolls

- yellow poster board

 

Save either 8 toilet paper rolls or 4 paper towel rolls that can be cut in half to be used for the candles. Clean off any tissue bits from the rolls and paint them in blue. You can use one shade or multiple – its up to you!

When dry, using a paper towel roll, cut it so there is a larger half that can be used as the center shamash candle for your handmade menorah.

After you have done this, its time to make the candles. I used craft sticks and yellow poster board for this step. The poster board can be cut into sections to make it easier to work with. Cut the paper into teardrop shapes to represent the flames. Glue the teardrop candle flames to the ends of the craft sticks.

Now you are done making your own handmade menorah! Each night when its time to “light” the menoarah, place each stick in the center of each roll.

An alternative for older children, can be creating a base as well, that the candles can be glued into. You can glue a candle in for each night of Hanukkah! www.iClicknPrint.com has all the tools you need to make your crafts and projects at home!

Its the last Thanksgiving craft before the big day! Here is a simple and super easy tutorial for a paper turkey roll that your kids can work on while you prepare one of – if not the biggest meal of the year.

Supplies that you will need to make your paper turkey -

- A toilet paper or paper towel roll

- A piece of poster board or foam board (any size will work)

- Glue

- Paint brush

- Glitter glue

- Googly eyes

- Package of E-Z Print Primary Variety Sign Board

You can start by cutting your paper towel or toilet paper roll in half. You can also cut a piece of foam board or poster board into a half moon shape, which will be used as the body.

Then, you can use the E-Z Print Variety Pack, and choose the colors you would like for the turkey’s “body parts.” Orange or red are perfect for the beak, and orange, black, or brown can be used for the feet.

Next, you can paint the paper towel or toilet paper roll if you would like. Or you can leave it as is, since its already brown. Glue your turkeys parts onto the roll, adding the eyes, beak and feet.

Sit the body to dry, and while your project is drying, you can move onto the fun part – creating the feathers for your paper turkey roll!

While loose glitter can be used, glitter glue is perfect for younger children who like to get messy with their crafts. You can use a dish for the different colors of glitter glue, and add to your projects with a paint brush.

Once the plates are dry, you can now attach your turkey roll. You can use tape or glue for this step, as well as adding the feet to the bottom. Here is the end result – a cute handmade paper turkey for the holidays! They make for great home decor!
