Accomplishments section should only include notable items
Lisa has many great accomplishments that she lists, but some of them are not noteworthy enough to include. This includes any mention of general duties. All of these should be removed from the resume or only included with the job it pertains to in the experience section.
Five to eight bullet points need to be used in every job entry in the experience section
The experience section is the only section that could easily get out of hand with the amount of information required. Bullet points help create a sense of clarity and makes reading much easier on an employer. Lisa inconsistently uses bullet points in this section. Every job entry needs between five and eight duties, projects and/or accomplishments, each given a bullet point to separate it. For her longer entries, Lisa needs to remove the less important details. For the shorter ones, she needs to create more details.

Formatting of the education section
Just like the experience section, the education section can easily create confusion if it formatting rules aren’t followed. Each program and area of coursework needs its own line, and each entry should always include the school name and location, as well as the date of completion.
