We are trying to hire someone...and it amazes me how poorly applicants put together their resume...especially planners who are supposed to be communicators.
Here are just a few points:
1. Put what is relevant to what you are applying to first. If all you have is your education,,,fine.. put your degree first. A job seeker shouldn't have to search your resume to see why you may be eligible.
2. If you have years of experience...do not go more than 2 pages... they do get tossed or looked at last. If you think it is necessary...then make sure the resume is separate from project history.
3. I would tend to leave off personal interests... and keep them separate from professional interests if you put them on your resume at all.
4. Don't jam a single page with words either...
5. Read your writing over...I can't believe it when I see typos!
