Use Bold Titles and Make Sure Your Resume Data is Easy to Find
We asked Andrew Ko how to write a better resume. He provides the following tips:
- Use bold titles and be mindful of time spent. Recruiters usually start by looking at the title held and the length spent at previous employers.
- Make sure data is easy to identify. Show only relevant information in an easy to find, tight format on the resume itself.
- Keep the formatting nice and professional. Avoid flashy fonts and design, and include bullet points as this makes it easier to read without blocks of text.
- Bridge gaps and highlight accomplishments. Show that you did many different tasks at your previous employers.
