Savvy job seekers know that their resume is the primary platform not just for presenting their credentials, but for spelling out exactly the kind of job they’re seeking.
If you’re looking specifically for part-time work, it’s to your advantage to use your resume to make that request up front.
Before you submit your application for any position, be sure that your resume and candidate profile are updated and complete.
Including all of your relevant experience on your resume gives us a more holistic view of you and helps us find where your skills will be the best fit.
The more you can target your job search, aiming specifically for employers who offer part-time positions, the greater your chances for success.
Smart use of social media, including professional networking sites like Linked In and personal homepage sites such as About.me, can help you make your resume virtual and broadcast your qualifications to hiring managers across a chosen industry.
Sounding the same note as in a tailored resume—that you’re specifically seeking part-time work—keeps your target consistent, while making your resume virtual.
Our UW employment team’s top tip for applying to UW jobs is to use a comprehensive resume—one that reflects all of your experience. Because our online application system only allows one resume per candidate.
On the other hand, if you’ve been a full-time worker until now, leave no doubt that you’re ready to move on to greater career-life flexibility as a part-timer.
