Bullets and Brevity – Keys to a Successful Resume

Bullet Points are a Must!

I can’t stress this enough…do NOT write a novel and call it a resume! Don’t write a long, verbose narrative and expect a hiring manager to be excited about the arduous task of reading it. Just don’t do it, please. And no paragraphs!

When it comes time to explain your experiences, use bullet points to outline your jobs duties and achievements. It is much easier to read and even easier to skim, which is what hiring managers are doing most of the time.

Bullet points draw attention to important information. They are also visually appealing and make the information seem more accessible to the reader. So keep them short and meaningful. That’s the key…one of them, anyways!
