By On May 02, 2018 Resume Format
In our culture people read from the top down and from left to right. So because the purpose of your resume is to be read, always keep this fact in mind as you write. For example, do not utilize valuable left margin space for dates, move dates to the right margin and use the left for information which will enhance your candidacy. Follow this theme throughout. Start by presenting the area which demonstrates your strongest qualifications. If your strength is your experience, or education or credentials or even volunteer experience; whatever, lead with it and proceed with the top to bottom concept. If your job title is more impressive than the company, list it first. Similarly, if your college is more impressive than the degree, then list it first.
To see an example of a functional resume, check out Chris Attwater’s resume below—or you can download the functional resume template in Word and personalize it for you. And if you need more tips, check out a list of sample resumes by industry.
To further make this point, beginning at the very top, the word "Resume" is not needed and a waste of space. The style and format of the document indicates its function, so a title is not needed. By this simple change, one line in length is saved for a more valuable message.
