Separate your information into appropriate categories
A Highlights section before the Experience section is generally a good idea as it will allow you to further emphasize certain traits that make you particularly qualified for the job being applied for. Skills and personality traits should be separated into different sections for better organization and to further highlight each specific point. Licenses obtained belong in the Education section or in their own section, not in Highlights. WRONG: Highlights
All lists should be in bullet point format
The Experience section should have 5-8 bullet points for each job listed. Expanding your description of your performance into a bullet list rather than paragraph form will help to highlight each specific achievement, and makes the list appear longer. Make sure to start each point with a strong action verb and to end with a period.
Use present tense when describing a current job/duty, and past tense when describing previous work
This tip also has to do with revising for grammar. You want your tenses to be in agreement not only because this is the correct grammatical format, but also to help avoid confusion. Your resume should be as easy to read as possible which means none of these errors should appear. Think of statements in your resume as first-person sentences with the personal pronouns removed.
