Your resume is not about you


Shocker? It’s about how you would help the employer.

It can be more than one page, lose the weird fonts and bolding. Stay above 11 pt type.

Keep paragraphs short so eyes don’t glaze.

Limit it to the last 10, maybe 15 years. An exception might be PERFECT experience that was earlier.

As you get older, EDUCATION moves down.

No hobbies, weight, age, married or unmarried, no photo.

A computer may read it, anyhow. Those little scamps are everyplace.
