When asked about resume writing, Angela elaborated a bit more on a few important points:

  1. Keep it simple, short. One-page is fine, especially if you graduated recently.
  2. Show results. You want to mention specifics, like an increase in sales, instead of just saying what you did. Show, don’t tell!
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
