What font should you use on your resume?

Resume Fonts

The most common and accepted font for business and professional use is Times New Roman.

  • A popular online resume writing service recommends serif fonts (e.g. Times New Roman) for a traditional look, and sans serif fonts (e.g. Arial, Helvetica) for a more contemporary look. Which you choose depends on your personal preference and the job you're applying for.
  • Use Century Old Style if you're applying to a "business" job--banks, brokerages, like that. Century Old Style is traditionally the face used for bank advertising.

How do you cite a webpage?

Calvin College has a great web page for citing search knightcite It has helped me tons well yes, he is very good but you might try this: i got it from virtual salt and it is very good! (i use it all the time) good luck! Lastname, Firstname. "Article Title." Periodical Name

Periodical Date: Page numbers. Database Name. Date of access

First of all, it's important to know that you can't always take a picture and use it without the permission of the author. Some websites ask that you not reuse their images. Be careful that you are not violating someone's copyright by using their image without their permission. Of course, citing a photo you use (with permission) is just like citing any other source in any other medium: the citation depends on the context and usage: == If you are using an image in a formal context, like an academic work, it's in your best interest to cite the image formaly... for example: "Description or title of image. [Online image] Available http://address/filename, Date." == If you are using an image less formally, a casual mention of the owner or site can be appropriate: "Thanks to Soandso for the image." or "Here's a picture of Soandso that Whatshisface took yesterday." == If you are using a picture as part of the design of a page or in a location where an explicit citation is inconvenient (and you have the author's permission), a brief note in the source code of the page is often appreciated. In any case, you should link to the author's page or provide a link to the picture in its original context whenever possible.

What is the function of a bibliography?

A bibliography lists what sources you used for your work (especially essays). The uses are...

-Proving to teachers and whatnot that you did actually do some research

-Prevent some forms or plagiarism

-Allow people to check the sources you used, to check the credibility or to further their own research

Bibliographies also test your ability to find enough information to make a bibliography, as well as your patience when you type all the citations out (and put them in alphabetical order, if you're forced to).

Poseidon (Neptune)
MLA Format

What were Poseidon's powers?

Poseidon has the power over all water, he can move it at will. He can create storms and have control over ocean currents. Also with his Trident he can create energy blasts. He controls all storms except tornado's those are performed by the storm god, but since Poseidon is the god of water and water is in the clouds he controls that.

Poseidon was god of the sea and earthquakes, when he struck sea, huge waves rose. When he struck the ground with his trident, the earth trembled and split open. He could also cause earthquakes.

He was the god of the sea and of earthquakes in Greek mythology. He used a trident, and invented horses. He was the son of Cronus and one of the three most powerful gods next to Zeus and Hades, for specific powers.What he could do with his trident because it was his was his implement of power and he could cause anything to do with the sea: tsunamis, storms, and he could also shake the earth as a result of him being the god of earthquakes too. Also it would always return to him.

When he struck the ground with his trident, the earth trembled and split open. When he struck the sea, waves rose mountain high and the winds howled, wrecking ships and drowning those who lived on shore. When he was in a calm mood, he would stretch out his hand and still the sea and raise new lands out of the water.

How do you write a reference list in the MLA writing style?

Your list of references in an MLA paper will be called "Works Cited," and that is the title that should go at the top of the page in the center. (This is not the same thing as the header, which is where your last name and the page number go.)

Remember, punctuation is important.

After the Works Cited, you would list each entry alphabetically by author. List the author (last name, comma, first name, period), title (book or main publication title, comma, article or short work title), publisher,publication city, and date (publisher, colon, city, comma, date), and page numbers of the borrowed material (i.e. 32-46).

Other things that you would need to include can be found at this site, depending on the *type* of entry... websites require the URL and don't always have page numbers, magazines require the magazine title and the article title, etc... each entry should have a hanging indent, meaning that the first line is flush with the left margin and the rest of the entry is indented five spaces. You do not have to do this by hand if you have a word processing program. They can do it automatically.

There is an example here you are looking for an overall look. If you need details about how to enter a movie or a book with multiple authors, or other types of entries, use the link in the previous paragraph.

Also, the definative authority is the MLA Guide, which I believe is in its sixth edition. It can be found at most public and academic libraries, or can be purchased at any university/college bookstore, or most retail book dealers.
