Employers desire crisp-looking resumes that get to the point. By using the example on this page as a model, you’ll optimize both the design and the substance of your resume.

Layout
Add awareness and readability by using bullet points, indents and various font styles (such as bold and italic letters). Refrain from utilizing non-traditional fonts or incorporating photos or graphics.

Length
The universal concept is: one page for early-career (entry level to 5-10 years); two pages for mid-career candidates.

Job Data
Supply the reader with applicable information about your previous and existing employers, such as product or service detail, size and physical location.

Measurables
Quantify your occupation obligations, reporting relationships and achievements with actual numbers.

Job and Education Dates
Make certain the dates are clear and without openings. If you’re a mid- to late-career candidate, you can save space by lumping early-career jobs together.

Degree Credentials
Kindly be accurate—and honest. Misrepresenting your degree is immoral, and might lead to an outcome that is embarrassing—or more painful.
