Experience Section

The experience section emphasizes your past and present employment and participation in relevant activities. This section helps convince employers that your experiences match their mission and goals for the position you are applying for. It also provides evidence of your qualifications and describes your experiences in a relevant way. 

The information that goes in this section is:

 

  • Company or Organization
  • Location
  • Position Title
  • Dates of employment or involvement
  • Description of responsibilities and duties
LIghtbulb icon Tip from an Advisor: When describing your responsibilities, do not just list the job description for your current or past jobs verbatim. List accomplishments, major projects completed, improvements made, goals met, etc.
