Separate your information into appropriate categories
Having on large section with multiple skills and personal traits actually draws attention away from each specific point that you want to be considered. A section for accomplishments can highlight achievements, awards, and excellence. A section for skills can point out specific training and qualified knowledge. WRONG: Highlights
If the individual has multiple awards or notable accomplishments, a separate section can come before the Experience section to highlight these
In this resume sample, there are no specific accomplishments listed. An accomplishments section would include specific achievements, such as treated 200 patients over 10 years or promoted to Team Leader within 2 years of employment. Special recognitions such as Employee of the Month could go here as well. Anything that really demonstrates excellence within the field should be included, if applicable.
All lists should be in bullet point format
Writing out job duties in the experience section in paragraph form will make it less obvious which specific qualifications you want to stand out. A bullet list in the experience section should be in order of importance from top to bottom, and include periods at the end of each bullet point. Not only will your resume be easier to read in this format; the lists will appear to be longer as well. WRONG: ProLab,Inc.

The experience section here could be further improved. One change was made in the above example:
Make sure to use present tense if you are currently in a position and past tense if you have left a position
This is an easy mistake to make, and can be avoided with some simple revision. Another formatting point could also really improve this section:
Include specifics and start each bullet with a strong action word
The key here is that the experience section should not read like a job description. The point here is to highlight relevant experience as well as to demonstrate specific accomplishments. WRONG:
