Basketball abroad: how to create a professional player resume (Step 3)

Your short resume will have 3 pages. The first page will be very similar to your EuroBasket profile and resume. At the top you have to put:

Name:
Position:
Height:
Weight
Colleague:

ALSO LIST ALL YOUR CONTACT INFORMATION AND THE CONTACT INFORMATION OF YOUR AGENT (if you have one)

Email:
Phone:
Skype name:

Below you will write a paragraph, in third person, about your playstyle and abilities. A third person example is:

John Doe is a great athlete.

NO: I’m a great athlete.

This paragraph should only have three or four sentences. It’s always good to somehow link something about your character and your greatest achievement. An example of a good paragraph is:

Ranking second in the nation in 3pt% (NCAA1) last season, John Doe has shown his endless range and has proven that he is one of the best shooters in the country. Although he is a prolific shooter, it is his overall ability to score the ball and defend the opponent’s best player that is so impressive. John is one of the most professional and hardworking prospects on the market. As captain for the past two seasons at UCLA, he has shown all the leadership qualities he would want in a point guard or guard.

Below, write down your statistics by year and school. For example:

career:
2000-2004: Paso Robles High School (Leading the team to a 23-3 record as captain)
2005-2006: UCLA-6th man off the bench
2007-2008: UCLA-(NCAA)-Team Captain: 11ppg, 2.1rpg, 3pt 44%, FG33%
2008-2009: UCLA-(NCAA)-Team Captain: 15ppg, 3.7rpg, 3pt 48%, FG49%
2009-2010: UCLA-(NCAA)-Team Captain: 15.3ppg, 3.5rpg, 3pt50%, FG45%

Next, you want to combine a list of all your awards and achievements and place them at the bottom. Go ahead and be honest here, but fill it with as many as you can think of. That means if you don’t have any in college, use the ones from high school. If you have some in college, by all means, add them. Highlight your biggest. If you have any records, please put them here as well.

On this page there should be an action photo of you and a headshot.

OK WELL THE FIRST PAGE OF YOUR SHORT CV IS FINISHED NOW ON THE SECOND PAGE…
