Do you want a better resume? Here are a few tips:
–Ban the word “responsible” from your resume. Responsible only means what you were supposed to do, not what you actually did.
–It’s okay to use “a” and “the.” Managed the 2022 budget process, led a team.
–If it happened in a year starting with 19 it’s too old to be on your resume. Starting with 20 is pushing it, but understandable depending on circumstances.
–You don’t need dates on your degrees (for the background check, yes, but not for the resume). See above for the old thing.
–Job Titles are more important than company names, in most cases. Bold the job title
–Walls of text make recruiters’ eyes glaze over.
–Changing it from “to ensure” to “ensuring” changes it from a task to an accomplishment.
–Leave super cool accomplishments on your resume, even if they don’t directly relate to the job you are applying for.
–Your resume should focus on your accomplishments, not your assigned tasks.
