A few general tips:
- Get rid of the skills at the top and embed them in the descriptions of what you’ve done in your jobs
- Max 3 bullet points per role / position
- Quantify more, ideally at least 2/3 bullet points include a number to quantify the results of that action
- Make it relevant, greek life, tutoring 10+ years ago, etc are not something that’s going to make them give you an interview, so no need to include it. In other words, if it’s an experience which wouldn’t show up on a background check, you should only include it if there’s something very specific you’re trying to highlight with it or that you’re exceptionally proud of
Also, I posted this in another thread, but have a look at this guide from Harvard:
Oh my goodness, thank you!!!
A couple of things:
1. With 5 yrs of experience you can definitely condense to one page
2. The summary section at the top, I don’t believe it’s necessary. You are capturing most of that through the resume and if there’s anything outstanding a simple cover letter would suffice.
3. Some images are blurry for me, but it seems like content wise you are sometimes stating roles/responsibilities. These could probably be removed to save space.
4. Education - keep it left aligned and condensed. Don’t take up too much space with it.
5. General/extracurricular - I see some guest speaker things, these could likely all be condensed to a single line at the bottom of your resume under extra unless it’s super relevant to what you are applying for.
Overall suggestion - try to tailor your resume a bit more for what you want to go for rather than a catch all, long resume.
I would recommend:
1. Get rid of the summary the top or shrink it to 2-3 sentences.
2. Move the skills at the bottom and condense
3. 2-3 bullet points per experience, and try to quantify your results (and have enough math + background to support this if asked)
4. I haven’t ever seen the Notable experience section before, but I recommend reducing it 2-3 bullet points (high level only)
5. Add the volunteer work as a bullet under notable experience and shrink it to one sentence
6. Make the Education section concise. There is too much unnecessary info there. They just need to verify your educational background (unless you made some notable contributions to your career at the time of your education)
And just generally, a one page resume is all most companies will read/ accept. With work experience starting from 2016, you must definitely be able to shrink this down to 1 page
Hope this helps!
Hi, same as the ones before me I would suggest to try to cut a bit.
Your CV is a bit too long and the hiring manager won’t read everything.
What I’ve seen that works for others is using phrases like: I’ve successfully managed…I’ve successfully conducted….I’ve manage to implement a successful/proactive… you know what I mean rather then: conducted, managed, done. A CV is like an ad, you want to make it catchy. Using these type of phrases will make the future employer think that you know your value and got a strong personality.
The summery at the beginning can stay just make it shorter. Also try to make your CV highlighting your personality not only your experience or job skill.
As you got this HR background as a hiring manager I would be interested in your personality more then your experience.
HR - sending you good vibes!! You got this.
I was always under the impression that resumes were 1 page in length and hiring managers typically spend 10 seconds glancing through them due to their busy work schedule and number of applications/resumes that come across their desk.
If you've worked more thasn 10 years your resume should be more than 1 page. I will go to the second page to see what's what.
The other suggestions posted are great. Tailor the resume to the job that you are applying for. How does each of these roles showcase the value you added? How can that value that you bring help in the new role?
Your page 1 - I would take each of the bolded sections and put one accomplishment for each - you've only been there a year and change - you're wasting space for the rest of your experience.
I would get rid of page 4 completely or no bullets and just what you've done , and the same for the notable experience section -while it's is very interesting, it's distracting.
You can combine some of the bullets in your work experience and you can either keep the gest lecturer and not have any bullets or add it to your summary.
5 Pages?! 😳
You need me to do you resume because this is far too long. TLDR!
Can you post another copy I can barely make anything out. The format looks good but where's your education?
