April 14, 2006, Newsletter Issue #30: Sentences or Paragraphs in a Resume

Tip of the Week

Don't overwhelm your prospect with big chunks of text. Even though it may look impressive, in reality, no one wants to read that much, You should use bulleted sentences, not paragraphs, to describe your work experience.

An important Resume Structure Tip: Resumes are read quickly, and bulleted sentences are much easier to read than long paragraphs. These bulleted sentences should also begin with action words, such as “developed,” “initiated,” or “managed.” Action words add strength to your resume.
