You've brainstormed the content -- now it's time to fit it all on one attractive page! If you follow the requirements below, you'll get full credit -- any further sprucing up is completely up to you.

This assignment is due at the beginning of class on September 5, in BOTH electronic and hard copy.

The electronic copy should be a single PDF submitted via Moodle. Corrupted or unreadable files will not receive any credit, and submissions in formats other than PDF may lose points.


Your resume format has two goals: first, to make it as easy as possible for the busy hiring manager to understand and appreciate your accomplishments.

It's your choice whether to do that when applying for jobs, but for this class, you will need to show that you understand the usual conventions. That way, if you break them, you'll break them on purpose!
