Organize Your Resume

Posted on Sep 19, 2012

I am rolling out a new service — RESUME ORGANIZING. Many job seekers have great content on their resumes, but the punctuation and layout could use an upgrade.  I have experience in reviewing resumes and I’m aware what employers are looking for.  Here are some simple tips: Make your NAME the focal point at the top of your resume Don’t forget to include an “Objective” Make sure your entire resume is the same font and stay away from non-traditional fonts Be consistent with font size and bold text Include 3-5 bullet points under each job Keep employment dates consistent, i.e. 03/2011 – 08/2012 or 2003-2011 The following are assets to a resume: Software Knowledge, Professional Certifications/Licenses, Community Involvement The “Education” section should be similar to: University of Pennsylvania – Bachelor of Science in Finance. Avoid abbreviations. Do not bore potential employers, keep your descriptions short and sweet Your resume should be 1 page, in most cases. Don’t forget to utilize spell check If you would like me to review your resume, contact me...
