Summary: It’s good practice to keep a current resume on file; you never know when you’ll get fired. Writing a resume while experiencing the trauma of a firing is difficult if not impossible.
I use bulleted lists; they get the information across without using dense paragraphs. It’s not uncommon to have 150 resumes for a private club superintendent job. You must make important information easy to read. Sound confident by using active words to describe your work experience.
This resume includes the credentials and experience of an imaginary superintendent named Joseph Agrostis. Cut and paste the format onto a word processing sheet and add your information.
