Lesson 1, Topic 2
Keep Your Resume Short, Avoid Mistakes, and Grab Attention!
When asked about resume writing, Angela elaborated a bit more on a few important points:
- Keep it simple, short. One-page is fine, especially if you graduated recently.
- Show results. You want to mention specifics, like an increase in sales, instead of just saying what you did. Show, don’t tell!
- Grab attention. Focus on important points ASAP, titles in bold and with separate, clear to read dates. Use numbers to describe work experience, as these stand out.
- Avoid mistakes. Make sure all your information is correct and use proper formatting. Avoid including things like weird email addresses and a list of your languages.
