Most hiring managers spend an average of 5-10 seconds reading a resume, so it is important to make the most of your space. Be concise, use strong, descriptive language, and try to keep it to a single page. Avoid using industry jargon, a fancy font, or a confusing format. List your skills and experience in bullet points instead of paragraphs. Start each bullet under your work experience section with an action verb. Use numbers, statistics and percentages whenever possible to prove you can achieve measurable results. Keep all information relevant to the position you’re applying to and leave out any personal information about your family, religion, or political affiliation. Focus on selling yourself to a hiring manager by writing about how your past accomplishments have prepared you for success in your future positions.
