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!

    Wow!! Thank you, Mr. Hindman! My resume looks amazing! It's clear, concise and attractively presented. It is 1000% better than the rambling, disorganized resume I had spent hours trying to write. I already feel more confident in my job search. Now the rest is up to me. Thank you so much!!

    JR: Wow!! I didn't think I was that impressive......I'd hire me!!! Thank you so much. I can't tell you how long I have stressed over the formatting of this resume, and you have done it in only a couple of days. I have been to resume writing classes and they all seem to tell you something different. I just wasn't sure which way to put it all together, but you have cut to the chase and streamlined it so well. Yes I will recommend you to others and I appreciate your offer for the interview help. Thanks again! ***When asked how she heard about Pro Resume Builder*** All I did was google search and went down the list. You were reasonably priced, some places were charging $300 to $700 and more. I think this is outrageous, especially since so many people are out of work. Price gouging is all it is. P.S. I have an interview this afternoon....... Thanks again!!
