5 ways to boost your resume

1: Delete anything from highschool. Unless you did something super amazing in high school, skip it. Employers want to see what you did outside of grade school.

2: Consider the rule of fourths. Imagine that you fold your paper in half and then have again. You want to make sure that you have about an equal amount of information in each of the four parts. It is much more pleasing to the eye.

3: Organize in reverse chronological order. This might sound a bit strange at first. However, when you list your jobs, you want to start from most recently to least. This is because employers typically just glance over the resume, and you want them to see what is most recent first.

4: Make sure your name is the biggest font. Your name is arguably one of the most important parts of your resume because if they can’t remember your name, then they won’t think to give you the job.

5: Use power verbs to describe tasks and duties. For example, if you are describing job duties you would say “assist, operate, manage, delicate, etc.” Power verbs make your resume sound stronger to the reader.
