Effective Resumes: Resources for Archivists and Records Managers
Several years ago, a sub-committee of the RMRT, put together Effective Resumes: Resources for Archivists and Records Managers. Committee members included Holly Geist, Nancy Freeman, Analisa Archer, Larissa Woo, Erin O’Meara, and Glenn Cook. The project focused on analyzing the similarities and difference between hiring managers at different organizations. To that end, those involved represented various archival and records management entities including government, academic and private organizations.
The resume guide contains tips, practical advice, examples, and resources that are applicable for students and seasoned professionals, either looking to change jobs or just spruce up their resumes. Now updated, the biggest change in the guide is a new link to NARA’s updated The Federal Resume Guide: What You Should Know When Applying for a Federal Career. The federal government recently changed aspects of its application process. The new Federal Resume Guide is comprehensive and an excellent resource for those applying for federal employment.
