Resume Best Practices
What makes your resume stand out among the 1000s of applications?
There are five key elements to include in a resume: the first is your contact. Keep it to the minimum information as necessary. Your name, location, email, address and phone number.
Next, include a summary, relevant experience, education and skills. That's what a resume is. It's an overview of your qualification, experience, skills, education, and accomplishments.
And for a professional resume, here are a few elements to consider:
- Keep it simple with consistent font style.
- Focus - Resume is not a list of everything you have done. It's supposed to tell a few relevant accomplishments and why they should hire.
- Clean format - 12pt font, one-inch margin, sections, and 1.5 line spacing can give the hiring manager a good first impression. White space matters.
