Tips for Creating A Professional Resume'

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!
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
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.
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
