Playback speed:

Congratulations on completing your resume!

In this activity, you used a *template* to provide structure and design to your resume.

You used *keywords* to tailor your resume to a specific job.

You *revised* your resume to include more effective wording, like *action verbs* and *measurable details*.

Then, you *shared* your resume with a partner and gave each other *feedback* in suggesting mode.

Finally, you revised your resume and saved it as a *PDF*, so that it is ready to send to prospective employers.

Depending on the process for the jobs you apply for, you may upload your resume as a PDF on a website.

Or, you may type the information into the webpage.

In either case, you now have an updated resume that is ready to use to apply for this job.

You should tailor each resume for the specific job you’re applying for.

But you don’t have to start from scratch every time.

Once you have a strong resume, you can make a copy of this document and customize it for the next job application.

Now that your resume is ready to submit, move on to the next activity to prepare for another important part of the job search: the interview.
