and we request that they produce at least

We will expect a resume from all applicants (Resumes must include full name, address, phone number, email, education history, and work experience).

There is no standard format for Resumes/CV’s, however, information should be clear and concise. Resumes/CV’s are meant to be a professional, clear overview of your formal education, training and experience. As such, they should stick to the “Facts”. Resumes/CV’s that read as more of an “Advertisement” for the individuals personal projects, agendas, company, or affiliations, and/or to which come across to the reader as making those facts appear as something more than they really are (“fluff” or “embellishment”) do not make the best impression. Instead, they come across as arrogant, self-centered, entitled, or with alternative motives. To receive the highest consideration and make the best impression, simply stick to the facts. Your resume/CV should be clear and concise, it should tell the person reading it your factual history, and nothing more.
