Religious & Activist Resumes

When apply for positions, make sure you’re not too culturally/religiously focused. Make sure everything is in plain English & understandable to someone not part of your world (no acronyms without explaining or industry-specific jargon, nothing in a different language). Try to make them look as secular and liberal as possible if not for a company of a shared mission.

Have more than one version of your resume.

One general one where you mention that you love animals in your Skills & Interests section; a second resume all about your activist PETA activity and being a vegan when applying to work for the humane society.

You get the gist.
