Update the résumé visual appeal. Change the font style, add color, use borders and shading to modernize the document.
Check contact information ensuring it’s updated and easy to read.
Revise the summary section to showcase accomplishments and highlight a few keywords. Core competencies can be included in success stories so no need for a long list of skills. If the résumé has an objective section, remove it. Employers know the objective is to get an interview—that’s why a résumé is submitted.
Update employment history section. Add current contributions and accomplishments that state facts, not adjectives, and demonstrate value. Review information and ask how the accomplishment aligns with the job need. A résumé should not be a job description. Succinctly state challenges, actions, and results.
Add new training, certification, and education Use an easy to scan format and consider the relevance of the information. Outdated training and certifications may need to be removed based on the position level.
Always proofread the résumé and then review the document content again. Looking for help with your résumé? Contact me and let’s discuss your project.
