Incorrect Summary Length
This applicant’s summary does a very poor job at highlighting her good qualities. A properly written summary should consist of at least 4-6 lines of information and the applicant should consider adding more information about her professional history in order to distinguish herself from other applicants. The section also needs to be revised in order to repair fundamental grammatical mistakes.
Add More Hard Skills
The skills section of this resume utilizes the correct format, but it does not include enough job-related skills. The applicant should add skills that that underscore her ability to successfully perform the job. This section will greatly benefit from adding this additional information.
Revise Work History
This section has a firm foundation, but some of the job descriptions are too long, and others are too short. Each job should only use 5-8 bullets. The applicant should also consider adding more information about what was achieved at each job, and remember to use the proper tense.
