2. A resume must look good; it must be well typed, well spaced, and have wide margins on both sides of each page. (This allows the reader to make notes which they may refer to during their interview with you.)
5. Sentence length. Weve already covered how the paragraph style shouldnt be used to provide the job accomplishments and description. They just take too darned long to read. The same applies for bullet points. A good bullet point is one or two lines in length; on occasion, a three-line bullet might be necessary. If you find yourself going longer, it is time to think about breaking it into two or more bullets.
Condense your overall tasks and responsibilities into a brief paragraph (no more than five lines) that gives the reader a snapshot of what you do. Remember to bring it life with vibrant action verbs, industry keywords, and quantifiable facts. Always avoid the overused, passive phrases like Responsible for the development of marketing plans for clients in the West Coast region."
Using word-formatting options such as bold, underling and italics can be a great way to make certain details of your resume pop or stand out. However, there is a such thing as using these formatting tools to often or not enough. A good rule of thumb to follow is to use them only under certain conditions (i.e. underlining your previous job titles and putting past company names in italics). The hiring manager will have a much easier time finding the information that he or she needs on a resume with these sorts of patterns.
