Résumé Tips & Tools

Writing a résumé is not always the easiest of tasks. You may find it helpful to work with a career counsellor in your area, an industry professional in your network or a trusted friend as you work through the process of preparing your résumé and applying to positions.

Before you begin... consider how your background and experience as a high school student, post-secondary student or career changer may be applicable and are transferable to the role you are applying for.

To help get you started on the right track to developing a résumé that may help to set you apart and connect to a role in Canada's property & casualty insurance sector, Career Connections has provided a few tools and resources.

A list of Action Verbs is also available and can be helpful when you are describing your previous work experience and accomplishments on your résumé to a potential employer. Remember - Use an Action Verb (eg. Reduced, Assisted, Negotiated, Planned) to start each of the accomplishment statements included in the work experience section of your résumé.
