Career Tips on Resume: Write Your Way to Resume with Impact, Steps 4 - 6

Steps 4,5 and 6 will lead you through your resume content including strong bullets with impact to the reader. A key point and "trick" of writing the resume is to use #s wherever you are able - # of people on the team, the % of savings, the # of key clients or the cost savings $s for units that you fixed. See the specifics of step 4 through 6 below:

4. Use bullets and numbers for impact! Bullets are easy to track when quickly reviewing a resume. Numbers draw the reader’s eye to that particular place on the resume. The more numbers throughout, the more likely your information will be read and of interest to the reader.Write strong accomplishment statements within your work experience history.  
5.  The statements should both reflect your strengths while targeting the position. The experience should be listed chronologically. This is the most preferred format by hiring managers and recruiters in the Bay Area.
6. The resume should only go back 10 – 15 years. There are times when relevant experience, to the targeted position, requires including additional years. This experience should be limited or you may include it in an additional information section. Remember that “less is more” for impact!
