Make Sure Sections Only Include Relevant Information
The sections of a resume are pretty standard. The reason for this is so that those reading resumes will know what to expect in each section and what section to look in for specific information. You don’t want to create your own sections or mix up information. A good example of a section that doesn’t follow the standard format in our sample resume is the licenses section. Licenses In good standing with the Alabama Board of Pharmacy. Certified Immunizer. Experienced in MTM billing and consulting. Diabetes conversation map certified. Certified Compounder. This is not a section that is found in all resumes, but it is okay to include a licenses section if you do hold professional licenses. However, the section should be near the end by the education section. Additionally, in the sample resume, this section is covering a lot more than licenses. The licenses should just be listed with their names. The experience in MTM billing and consulting is a skill, so it shouldn’t be in this section at all. You want to keep your sections focused and ensure you are only including relevant information so you don’t confuse whoever is reading your resume.
Consider Including an Accomplishments Section
The accomplishments section is a great way to make your resume stand out from the crowd. This section is where you will list any major things you have accomplished. It is not the place to put general job duties or responsibilities. You should only include the accomplishments section if you have at least three things to list. The accomplishments should always be in bullet format without ending punctuation.
List Experience With Bullets
In the experience section, you want to avoid paragraphs. Paragraphs are overwhelming and not easy to scan. Remember the person reading your resume has limited time to devote to it. They want to be able to read through the resume quickly. By listing your job duties and responsibilities instead of putting them in a paragraph, it just makes the experience section easier to read. Here is one of the entries from this resume’s experience section: Professional Experience Current Walgreen’s ? Pell City, AL Pharmacy Manager Managed pharmacy inventory through proper medication ordering, returns and inter-store transfers. Managed pharmacy staffing and discipline matters.

The list format will make this easier to see each duty. In addition, to ensure proper formatting, each point should start with a verb in the present tense because this is a current job (past jobs only use past tense) and there should be no ending punctuation for each point.
