Experience first, education second
You only have one page, so make it count! Start with your relevant experience to pull the manager/recruiter in to land an interview.
Save your resume as a .pdf
By sending your resume in .pdf format you will not have to worry about your format accidentally getting messed up and ruining your iniital first impression
Ditch “references available upon request”
Remember, you only have one page, so use it wisely. If an employer needs references from you they will ask. Use that line to better showcase your unique qualifications!
Make sure your contact information is correct and up-to-date.
There is nothing worse than finding the ideal candidate and not having a way to contact them. #greatjobsgreatpeople
