What to Include on a Resume
The purpose of a resume is to present relevant information about your experience and qualifications in the most effective and concise manner possible.
Remember the important part
Stick to one page
An employers eye will pick up four to six key points during a 60-second scan of your resume.
You can move the reader’s eye to certain points by the use of well-chosen design techniques.
UPPER CASE LETTERS: For headings and your name. USE CAPITAL LETTERS SPARINGLY AS OVERUSE TEND TO DIMINISH THEIR EFFECTIVENESS.
Indenting: Indenting can help organize the details included on your resume. Use it appropriately
Bullets: Bullets are points of punctuation set in front of each item in a list.
Bullets are a great way to list your accomplishments on the job.
Bold and Italicized Words
Keep it simple
Bullet points instead of paragraphs
Font types and sizes
Between 10 and 14
Garamond, Goudy Old Style, Georgia,
Arial, Times New Roman
Uniformity and consistency
Same font sizes
Same font types for headings, etc
Placement of information (dates, titles, etc.)
