On the flip side, here are a few “DOs” for resumes:

DO lead the resume with a “professional summary” statement that describes who and what you are in the context of your skills and accomplishments. This describes the “value” you can bring to a potential employer.

DO make your resume graphically appealing so that it’s easy to read. You can accomplish this by dropping in boldface or italicized type or by using text “bullets” to highlight key points.

DO allow a trusted friend or family member to read it over for typographical errors and words or phrases that just might not make sense.

DO treat the resume as a marketing document that helps you “sell” yourself to an employer, primarily by addressing how you made a difference in the workplace rather than merely listing titles, roles, and responsibilities.
