Hi all! I am an instructor of Business Communications and have decided to spread the MT wisdom instead of what is in our textbook for resumes and interviews.
I am putting together a sample "new graduate" resume and thought it would be fun to get your input!
For fun, would you come up with a job and the corresponding responsibilities paragraph and accomplishments? When we finish, I'll share the final document.
Here's what I have so far....
Aug 08-present: BS, Political Science, University of Memphis: Followed a course of study to meet degree criteria. Studied American politics, constitutional law, and political statistics.
· Achieved 95% pass rate in all end of semester exams by devising and implementing study program
· Achieved Dean’s List 6 consecutive semesters by maintaining 3.75 GPA in concentration
Sept 10 - Oct 11: Server & Bartender, R.P.Tracks: Responsible for serving food, alcoholic, and non-alcoholic beverages in a licensed restaurant for up to 200 customers per night. Set up bar before service. Cleared and cleaned bar and restaurant after service. Balanced and cashed up register.
· Recognized as “Outstanding Bartender” by customer comment cards
Aug 10 – May 11: Treasurer, Sigma Kappa Sorority, Inc., University of Memphis: Responsible for accurately tracking financial data for large, university-based sorority association. Reported monthly to sorority executive committee and to national headquarters on financial standing of sorority members. Paid monthly housing dues and all associated fees.
· Achieved 95% payment of dues from members by sending reminder bills in advance of due date

HAVE FUN! Your help is SO greatly appreciated. Just think, this semester, I've got 30 students. In the fall, I have 120. If we can keep spreading MT tactics to college students, maybe they'll recognize the right way to do things!
