<p>How in-depth should a resume for the supplemental info be? If a job is self-explanatory (ie server at a restaurant), should I provide further description beyond time employed and hours per week?</p>

<p>Also, are titles for essays required? Preferred?</p>


<p>Resumes should highlight accomplishments, achievements, and what you gained from it. </p>

<p>For an example, working at restaurant XXXXX has taught me how to deal with difficult customers and people. </p>

<p>I think hours per week is irrelevant, unless you use that to emphasize your ability to balance work, school, and a social life. </p>

<p>thanks, that link was very helpful.</p>

<p>Also, while it's hard for a college student to do so, try using as many meaningful numbers as you can. So, for example, who cares that you made sales calls? The question is, how much did the company increase in revenue because of your sales skills? How many new customers did you attract in whatever time frame you worked? What size was the average transaction? Employers like to see your accomplishments quantified.</p>
