Getting Started

Your resume should begin with your name and contact information. Your contact information should include your address, telephone numbers and email address. It is easy to miss something obvious, so take a moment and review your contact information (line by line) for accuracy. Some applicants miss out on job opportunities because they didn't provide accurate contact information or forgot to include their telephone number. Don't let this happen to you! You have worked to hard to get to this point, so don't let the opportunity slip through your fingers.

The Finished Resume

When writing your bank teller resume, compare it to the above listed sample bank teller resume to ensure you haven't missed anything critical. Have it reviewed by as many people as you can and implement any suggestions you think are beneficial. Once you are satisfied that your resume will impress a prospective employer, its time to put it to the test.

Remember, if you list someone as a reference, make sure you have their permission. Your potential employer won't be impressed if they call a reference you gave them and they are surpried or worse yet, if they don't give you a good reference. Yikes!
