3. Separate Contact Information
Separate your personal contact information with a bullet or divider, providing great visual appealand easy e-mail and phone number identification.
4. Add Target Job Title
Add your target Job Title to introduce your Summary or Profile instead of the more commonlabels such as “Qualifications Profile or just Summary.” This will help you add a great resumekeyword right at the top and will lend to your expert image/ brand.
5. Edit your Summary Or Profile
Ensure sentences end quickly, combine ideas, and try to limit this introductory paragraph to fiveto six lines. This will help create a nice crisp look and you will deliver your marketing messagemore clearly.
6. Remove Orphan Words
Go through the rest of your resume and remove all orphan words (words left on a line bythemselves). This just causes an unorganized look and it really isn’t necessary.
7. Bold Sections
Bold resume sections (Employment, Education, etc.) and enlarge the font size to 14 pt. This willnicely separate the areas of your resume and guide readers through.
8. Group Job Accountabilities Together
Group job accountabilities together in a paragraph form, separating from achievements. Keep thenumber of sentences to no more than six. People lose interest when paragraphs are long-winded.Plus, long sentences and paragraphs makes it easier for your message to become convoluted.
9. Separate Your Achievements
Separate your achievements (how you actually performed and the results you generated) fromthe job description. Bullet them to no more than five to six bullets; any more than that will look too busy and unwelcoming to the reader.
10. Use Action Words
Ensure you have begun all bulleted sentences with action verbs.
