This resource provides four alumnae resume samples. Whether you are a recent graduate, a career changer, or a senior executive, your resume is a selection of information that you will use to introduce yourself to people in your field and prospective employers. As you update your resume during your career, think about your most relevant experience, your most recent experience, and what is most important for an employer to know about you. Consider making an appointment with an alumnae career adviser or a career community adviser in your industry to discuss how best to communicate your background and accomplishments on your resume.
