Before you submit your resume, you should be sure it is the best it can be and shows your strengths. Our resume experts have reviewed this Gaming Slot Auditor resume sample to look for mistakes and show you here how to avoid these mistakes in your own resume.
Use the proper tense when describing job experience
Unless you are describing the responsibilities and contributions you make in your current job, the experiences you list on your resume should all be in the past tense. WRONG: · Calculating Meters · Viewing and Editing Meters · Preparing Paperwork for collectors · Interacting with collectors, Accounts Payable, General Ledger, vault RIGHT: · Calculated meters · Viewed and edited meters · Prepared paperwork for collectors · Interacted with collectors, accounts payable, general ledger, vault Double-check your resume to be sure the proper verb tense is used in each bullet point. Only use the present tense if you are describing the job you currently hold.
Work Experience section should be more than merely a job description
Make each bullet point in your work experience a strong concise statement that shows off your skills and accomplishments in each job you have held. You want to make sure that the experience section showcases what you did, how you did it and the major accomplishments of your contributions in your previous jobs. WRONG: Revenue Auditor 03/1998 to 12/2006 M&K Enterprises Las Vegas, NV
RIGHT: Revenue Auditor 03/1998 to 12/2006 M&K Enterprises Las Vegas, NV
The second example shows how a few tweaks can make each bullet point highlight your strengths and accomplishments rather than simply describing duties of the job. Aim for five to eight bullet points per job. Any fewer and the job will look skimpy, while any more will not necessarily serve to enhance your image with the hiring managers.
