This study examines the resume preferences of 523 recreation and leisure service professionals who interview and hire entry-level recreation professionals. Findings from this study support the fact that different occupations and disciplines require different approaches on how resume content information is presented. In the recreation and leisure services field, the job objective, grades, length, inclusion of references, and general resume design and format are different than other fields. A model resume for a business position, for example, may be of little value for individuals seeking employment in recreation and leisure service agencies. These applicants should not attempt to follow the resume requirements of other occupations. Resume content should be tailored to the preferences of the administrators reviewing the resumes and making the hiring decisions, regardless of the setting.
