Campus Connection: How to write resumes that impress

School is starting again — and it’s never too early to think about your application for the next internship or your first job.

That’s the focus of our current issue of Campus Connection.

We talk to Dennis Anderson, executive editor of the Peoria Journal Star, about what types of resumes catch his eye and what impresses him.

Here’s something to remember: “But what really helps to make a resume great is a concise sentence at the top, just
under the contact information and before the candidate’s experience. This is your shot to tell the hiring manager who you are and what you can do for the organization.”

Think of it as your Twitter bio, but serious.
