What is the Resume Ingredients Rule?
The Resume Ingredients Rule is from author and career expert Donald Asher…
- Organize the information on your resume in accordance with your desired impact on the reader. This rule should govern which information you present and the order in which you present it.
- That’s why you always list your work experience in REVERSE chronological order — because your most important and applicable jobs are likely to be the most recent.
- You don’t want the first thing that the employer sees to be bagboy at the supermarket or waitress if you’ve had more important and relevant jobs.
