This way, you can see in action the methods that go into writing the best resumes, and take them down to use in writing your own.
Dont put too many bullet points into one category
It is great to highlight some skills and personality traits before the Experience section, but overstuffing one category will detract from each individual point being able to stand out. One way to deal with this is to create a separate section for personal highlights and another one for skills. If possible, it is really helpful to have an Accomplishments section with at least 3 achievements, recognition, or other excellence. A good rule of thumb is that a Highlights section should have at least 3-4 items per column in the table but no more than 7-8 per column.
Separate information into appropriate categories
By providing different categories for the different types of points you want to highlight, the resume will be more organized and easy to read. It will also give the reader a chance to take a pause between sections, so that you can highlight the most important items at the top of the lists for each section. WRONG: Skill Highlights
RIGHT: Personal Highlights
Skills and Training
Write in the present tense if you are describing current employment, and past tense if describing a previous job
Revise for these grammatical errors in order to avoid confusion and to have the most professional appearance as possible. These mistakes are easy to catch in revision, which means if they are missed in the final version then the potential employer reading it will be the one to catch them.
