5 Tips for Rethinking Your Resume
Spell acronyms in full on first mention (with acronym following in brackets); subsequently you can then just use the acronym.
Unless deciding to target just one position, you will need more than one version of your résumé and cover letter.
Accomplishments from previous responsibilities set you apart – not tasks. Focus on accomplishments.
Vital to do. Be totally truthful. NO bad spelling/typos. Only include pertinent information.
Recruiters note your core skills to help assess your fit for the job. Show them on the first page, in the top half of your résumé.
