1) Use Reverse Chronological Order
When writing your job experience and education history, remember to list your most recent experience and education first
2) Use Statistics
Instead of mentioning that you were in charge of minimizing expenses, be specific. Say that you “reduced sales related expenses by 34%”.
3) Target your resume
Make tweaks to your standard resume for each job that you apply to. Think about what they’re looking for, and highlight that in yourself.
4) Quality over Quantity
5 relevant skills are better than 20 irrelevant ones with 5 relevant ones.
5) Keep Font & Style Consistency
Don’t refer to yourself in the third person then the first, and don’t change your font with the possible exception of your titles.
6) Spell Check & Style Check
Use your computer’s spell check, then have a friend check for spelling, grammar, and style.
