Tips for a professional Resume

  • If you are unsure about your resume, please bring it to one of the brothers for review during a recruitment week event; brothers will be available to help you before and after each event
  • Make sure your name is in LARGE print at the top of your resume
  • Do your best to make your resume diverse, and highlight what is most relevant to what you are applying for
  • If you choose to use an objective, be sure it is accurate and relates to what you are applying for
  • Double and triple check for grammar and spelling errors; have someone else check, too
  • Focus on your accomplishments and commitments rather than only focusing on responsibilities
  • When describing activities, use strong action verbs. Do not use the same words over and over
  • Effective use of bullets, headings, and columns make a resume easier to read. Stay consistent with your formatting
  • Keep in mind that an interviewer will only have about 30 seconds to look at a resume
  • Resume length should be no more than on page (one sided) 
 

Tips for a professional interview

  • Make sure your application is complete and turned in on time; late applications will not be accepted, no exceptions
  • Before the interview, take time to think about experiences you have whether in high school, college, or work,  and what you have gained from those experiences
  • Be sure to give some thoughts as to why you want to be a part of Delta Sigma Pi and if you are ready for the commitment of pledging
  • Give some thoughts about what differentiates you from your peers and what you can uniquely contribute to Delta Sigma Pi
  • Dress professionally, as if you were interviewing for a job at a company
  • Come 5-10 minutes early to the interview
  • Remember that the first 60 seconds you spend with an interviewer are the most important
  • Remember to speak clearly and confidently
  • It is better to take a moment tot think about your answer to a question before speaking; a strong answer is better than a quick answer
