Should you put publications on resume?
You do not have to include your publications/presentations and honors/awards. This is not to say that you can’t, but generally it is less expected that these would be included in the resume. We recommend having a supplemental list of publications and presentations to provide employers if they ask for it.
What is the most important thing to consider when writing a resume?
Try to include only work experience, achievements, education and skills most relevant to the employer. You can find the most relevant attributes by closely reading the job posting. You should prioritize important information higher on your resume to draw attention to key skills and achievements.
What is the first thing on a resume?
Your opening statement should start with one sentence about who you are and what you bring to the job, then describe the skills and attributes you have that suit you to the job. For some examples of opening statements, check out our Sample resumes and Sample cover letters pages.
