Here are some mistakes with this resume that you dont want to make.
Make your professional summary strong
The professional summary is difficult because you dont want it too long or too short. To remember how to create an amazing professional summary, remember this formula that works perfectly. Begin with your professional title, and ten state your years of experience. Next, write 2-4 sentences that sum up your experience and/or character. Here is an example: Wrong Summary Dedicated educator committed to creating a classroom atmosphere that is stimulating, encouraging and supportive for all students. Right Summary Dedicated educator with 26 years of experience. Committed to creating a classroom atmosphere that is stimulating, encouraging and supportive for all students. Instills proper work habits in children. Enjoys making school enjoyable and making children excited about their future. You can see that the formula for a professional summary makes it stronger and more appealing to potential employers.
Choose plenty of skills
Make sure you choose plenty of skills for your skills or highlights section. Of course, just like the professional summary, you dont want it too long. Choosing 8-12 skills works well for a resume. This sample resume only has five. After 26 years of experience, the applicant should have plenty to add to the resume. Here are some skills that could be added to the resume:
Of course, you want to add your own skill-set, but these are some skills you may have that would shine on a resume.
Use bullet points for your lists
In this sample article, bullet points are used for the highlights, but not for any of the other lists. They should be used in the other sections as well. The professional experience should be written in lists instead of paragraph form. Here is an example of how it will clean up your resume. Wrong Thorp School District ?
