    Greetings, my fellow ALO has requested from me that I start on an official Resume which includes my EC, stating that the Academy will ask for one sooner or later. Are there any specific guidelines I should follow, or any samples that I can look through to get an idea on how it should look like? Because I simply have never made one for college nor for a job.

    Thanks in advance.

    My ALO said the same thing to me. I had the same question as you, so he E-Mailed me an example. PM me your E-Mail and I can forward it to you if you want or I can just copy and paste it into a PM if you’d prefer. :thumb:

    If you have microsoft office or openoffice on your computer, the word processor has very good resume templates. Use the one for a job application. You can change the title or delete the section on job experience. The other templates like professional and such aren't as user friendly. Resumes are easy. There's nothing special for your resume for your ALO. Best of luck. mike....

    Is it required to include any essays in the resume?

    A resume is an outline/synopsis of your life. Depending on the type of resume, it lists your experiences, accomplishments, education, skills, hobbies, etc... Some people include a cover letter, but that's usually a short couple of paragraphs of introduction. If you look at the templates in Microsoft Word, or similar, under new document, you will find that a resume is very self explanatory. Normally 1 page, 2 if you have 20+ years of experience working or similar. No types of essays or anything similar are put on a resume.
