Reduce Summary Length
The summary for this resume is simply too long, and should consist of only 4-6 lines. This section provides the applicant with a chance to showcase his skills and highlight his positive personality traits, but this particular summary does not adequately do that. The applicant uses extremely technical language, and provides little information about his personality. Much of the information listed here could be included in the highlights or accomplishments section. Better: Senior process engineer with 5 years’ UFR toolset experience. Extensive experience working in a wide variety of environments and utilizing a wide variety of toolsets. Seasoned in white paper creation, spec editing, and equipment upgrades. Accomplished in PCSA and EP analysis. Professionally versatile and willing to learn new information. The better version reduces the summary’s length and re-words the section to make it more concise.
This applicant’s accomplishments section is unnecessary. Instead of actual achievements, the applicant simply lists information regarding his work history. If he desires to keep this section, he should add information on training, certifications, awards, or recognitions. If not, all the information here should be moved to the experience section. Move to Experience Section: Process/Product Improvement
Quality Control Expert
There are two main issues with the experience section of this resume. Firstly, it does not use the proper format. Bullets, not paragraphs, should be used to organize information. Secondly, this section is far too short. Each job should utilize 5-8 bullets when describing responsibilities and tasks. The applicant also needs to remember to place the jobs in chronological order, beginning with the most recent. Wrong: 06/2003 to 08/2003 Process Engineering Intern Intel ? Rio Rancho, NM Assisted in day to day sustaining and troubleshooting of the RVX 200mm tool set. Was also given the task of owning qualification of a newly installed tool. 06/2004 to 08/2004 Process Engineering Intern Intel ? Rio Rancho, NM Assisted in sustaining and PM execution. More involved in complex troubleshooting and owned a complicated dog tool particle investigation. Right: 06/2004 to 08/2004 Process Engineering Intern Intel ? Rio Rancho, NM
06/2003 to 08/2003 Process Engineering Intern Intel ? Rio Rancho, NM
The right version places the jobs in chronological order and repairs grammatical errors, but the applicant still needs to add more information to each job description.
