Four years ago, I paid a service to create my resume. It looked nice, thanks to some great formatting, but it never felt like a good resume. Much of the writing was awkward because dozens of popular keywords were clumsily forced into sentences.
Yesterday, I decided that it was time for a complete overhaul. The goals were to cut out the keyword-focused content, simplify the format, and pare it down to one page. After several hours of writing, and dozens of revisions, I think I’m finally happy.
So, what do you think? I’d love to hear suggestions. Do you have any great resume writing tips that we can all use? Feel free to add them to the comments section below.
Until next time.
