Resume Writing Tips

The following tips are based on what we've learned from helping over 100,000 job seekers create a resume with our resume builder.

Resume Format

Recruiters will be most interested in your most recent work experience, so you should use a reverse chronological resume format. Other sections, like education, skills, and languages should be added after your work experience section.

You should choose a high quality resume template that makes it easy to read your resume. Look for proper margins and spacing, legible typography, and consistent styling. While your content is the most important part of your resume, recruiters will appreciate that it's easy to read. If a cover letter is required for the application, it should have similar formatting to your resume.

Resume Contents

Once you've chosen a professional resume template and format, it's time to start writing your resume. One of the most important aspects of any manager's resume is to show that you have strong communication skills and a history of working well across teams.
