Describe your Experience

In the sample work experience, the student has included small descriptors for their related work and volunteer experience. There are only two different experiences to list here so it doesn’t take up too much room. If you have held multiple positions that you want to highlight, consider putting a general descriptor of all of your experience and then including a button that links to your full resume with more details.

When providing a description of your work experience, identify key words that would reflect your past experience but that also relate to the type of role or position you are interested in. For example, “My experience includes multiple positions within the culinary industry, planning menus and serving meals at restaurants, resorts and catering events.” After reading this hook statement, it should help to entice the reader to click on your resume to read more details.

If you are embedding all of your experiences into your portfolio (rather than on a separate resume section), make sure that when you describe what you did, you are including the most relevant details, tasks and accomplishments related to the type of role you are trying to get into. You don’t have to list every single thing that you did in each position.
