Tips for Creating A Professional Resume'

Your resume is the first impression you send to a hiring manager. An unprofessional resume – one that is difficult to read, confusing, covered in errors, or unrelated to the job description – will get discarded immediately. Hiring managers often get dozens, even hundreds of applicants for each job, make sure yours stands out from the crowd!

01

Keep it Focused

 

  • It's important not to include extra information - more isn’t necessarily better

  • It should focus on skills that qualify you for the job

  • Leave out anything that won’t help you get the job you want

02

Avoid Tiny Fonts

  • Dense blocks of text, vague or excessive language and inconsistent formatting can lose your audience immediately. 

  • Use a legible font (such as Times New Roman, Arial, or Calibri).

  • Choose a font size between 10 and 12 points.

03

Select the Best Resume Type

04

Be Consistent

  • Consistent formatting. For instance, if you use bullet points to describe your responsibilities and achievements at one position, be sure to use bullet points in all other positions as well.

  • Bullet points should be formatted the same throughout your document
