Quantify all of your experience and qualifications

Use action words (Implemented, created, designed, coordinated)

Put pictures or “frillies” on your resume

Use a general “all purpose” resume template for all jobs

Sell yourself short

  • Many hiring agents work on the Merit System of employment (scores are attributed to your resume and ability to explain your experience)
  • Match your resume to the job requirements and job duties
