Help your readers understand the depth and breadth of your experience by providing details about the organizations where you’ve worked. You can cite the number of employees, the number of locations, the total annual company revenue, the specific business or industry, and other details that will give readers a frame of reference. You will notice brief company descriptions on both of the resume samples we are sharing. On Leslies resume, the information is integrated into the short paragraph immediately under each companys name. On Lorettas resume, the information is positioned right next to the company name. No matter where you position the information, it is valuable. Knowing where you have worked helps readers put everything into context and makes your experience and accomplishments all that more impressive. Just as with your headline, be strategic. If you have worked only at very large public companies and now want to move to a small privately held business, the size of those companies might scare off your target employers. Think about your goals and add the details that make you a good fit for the companies, associations and/or other organizations where you want to work.
This CV Saviour hybrid style of resume (international A4 paper size) works really well for anyone really, but in particular for those with challenging career histories, career changers, job hoppers, those who have juggled multiple concurrent jobs, those with little work experience or job seekers who want to take the focus off their past job titles or the fact that they have very little paid work experience, so they can emphasise the value they bring to their next role. The style aims to capture 70% of the key information about a candidate on the front page. Where colour has been used in blocks, it is shading only, so it won not cause issues for ATS, and the Key Skills section uses ATS-friendly hard set tabs. For those with very little experience, but heaps of knowledge on a subject, they should use the heading Areas of Knowledge and Understanding instead of Key Skills, if they do not yet have the hands-on experience in a skill.
Stop fiddling with the margins. Lees says the days of a one-page resume are over: It used to be that you used a tiny font size and crammed in the information to make it fit. Nowadays, two or three pages is fine, but that is the limit: Any more than three and it shows that you can not edit. Heifetz agrees: I have never met a resume that fit on one page, even for a recent graduate. If you are going to tell a compelling story, you need more space. You can supplement what is on the page with links to your work but you have to motivate the hiring manager to take the extra step required. Tell them in a brief, one-line phrase what is so important about the work you are providing, says Heifetz. And stick to the most common fonts. It is not how fancy it is. It is how clear, clean, and elegant it is in its simplicity, says Heifetz. Vary the line length and avoid crammed text or paragraphs that look identical. The goal is to include enough white space so that a hiring manager wants to keep reading. For example, the opening summary could be three or four lines of text or two or three bullet points. It does not matter as long as it is easy to read, says Heifetz. It can be hard to be objective about your own experience and accomplishments. Many people overstate — or understate — their achievements or struggle to find the right words. Consider working with a resume writer, mentor, or a friend who can help you steer away from questions like, Am I good enough for this position? and focus on Am I the right person for the job? At a minimum, have someone else check your resume for logic, grammar, spelling, and punctuation.
