Fill the Summary
While this candidate has a passable summary, a few edits will really make it shine. The summary should be 4 to 6 phrases long and should give an overview of your professional experience.

Remember to write the summary from the first person perspective, but do not include pronouns of any kind.

Follow All Experience Section Guidelines
In this section, the candidate needed to do a little proofreading to ensure his bullets used word wrap properly and to catch misspellings. Moreover, this section calls for phrases that begin with a verb and give a good idea of responsibilities and projects performed on the job. If your entry lists a past post, use past tense verbs. Only use present tense verbs and phrases for positions you currently hold. Each entry calls for at least 5 bullets and no more than 8 points, like so: Senior Aerospace Technician February 1989 to March 2003 United Space Alliance ? Kennedy Space Center, Florida
Maintain Consistent Format in the Education Section
In this sample, the education section looks like it contains several errors because Brevard Community is repeated a few times and the last entry lacks a date. While dates are not required for education completed many years ago, it is a good idea to be consistent throughout a section. Moreover, any additional information regarding GPA or coursework should be bulleted under the appropriate entry. An edited education section would look like: Education Bachelor of Science: Business Administration, 2009 Barry University ? Miami Shores, Florida, United States
Associate of Science: Electronic Technology, 1987 Brevard Community College ? Cocoa, Florida, United States Prep Class for PMP Certification: Project Management1986 Florida Institute of Technology ? Melbourne, Florida, United States Always proofread your document because small mistakes can significantly detract from your professional first impression.
