Add More Highlights
The highlights section of this resume is too short and doesnt do a good job at distinguishing the applicant from other job-seekers. Each column should have three to four bullets detailing acquired skills and knowledge. The applicant may also want to consider adding more work-related highlights.
The accomplishments section of this resume does not list actual accomplishments. The applicant only lists job responsibilities and licenses. She should move this information to a more appropriate section of the resume in order to increase conciseness.
