When writing..

"Résumés 1: Introduction to Résumés
Before beginning to write your résumé, it is a good idea to understand what you are writing, why you are writing it, and what is expected as you write it. This basic introduction will aid both new resume writers and those who may have forgotten certain details about résumé writing.

Résumés 2: Résumé Sections
When writing a résumé, you need to understand the specific needs of each section. This resource, with information about contact information, education, and work experience sections, will help explain what each section requires.

Résumés 3: When to Use Two Pages or More
You have probably heard the saying, ""Keep your résumé to a page."" Although this is true for most cases, many employers are accepting longer résumé certain instances. Use this resource to gain more understanding about what constitutes the page length of a résumé."

Despite a paper's

"Reading research papers effectively is challenging. These papers are written in a very condensed style because of page limitations and the intended audience, which is assumed to already know the area well. Moreover, the reasons for writing the paper may be different than the reasons the paper has been assigned, meaning you have to work harder to find the content that you are interested in. Finally, your time is very limited, so you may not have time to read every word of the paper or read it several times to extract all the nuances. For all these reasons, reading a research paper can require a special approach. Sometimes you just need to buy research papers.

To develop an effective reading style for research papers, it can help to know two things: what you should get out of the paper, and where that information is located in the paper. First, I'll describe how a typical research paper is put together.

Despite a paper's condensed form, it is likely repetitive. The introduction will state not only the motivations behind the work, but also outline the solution. Often this may be all the expert requires from the paper. The body of the paper states the authors' solution to the problem in detail, and should also describe a detailed evaluation of the solution in terms of arugments or an experiment. Finally, the paper will conclude with a recap, including a discussion of the primary contributions. A paper will also discuss related work to some degree. Because of the repetition in these papers at different levels of detail and from different perspectives, it may be desirable, to read the paper ``out of order'' or to skip certain sections. More on this below."

Find the most relevant

"This is a hard essay to write. It’s probably much more personal than any of the papers you have written for class, because it’s about you, not World War II or planaria. You may want to start by just getting something—anything—on paper. Try freewriting. Think about the questions we asked above and the prompt for the essay, and then write for 15 or 30 minutes without stopping. What do you want your audience to know after reading your essay? What do you want them to feel? Don’t worry about grammar, punctuation, organization, or anything else. Just get out the ideas you have or buy essays of such kind.

Now, look at what you’ve written. Find the most relevant, memorable, concrete statements and focus in on them. Eliminate any generalizations or platitudes (""I’m a people person"", ""Doctors save lives"", or ""Mr. Calleson’s classes changed my life""), or anything that could be cut and pasted into anyone else’s application. Find what is specific to you about the ideas that generated those platitudes and express them more directly. Eliminate irrelevant issues (""I was a track star in high school, so I think I’ll make a good veterinarian."") or issues that might be controversial for your reader (""My faith is the one true faith, and only nurses with that faith are worthwhile,"" or ""Lawyers who only care about money are evil."")."
