Here’s how you make a professional resume:
- Use professional resume formatting: choose an easy-to-read resume font, set the margins between ½” and 1” to allow even spacing, and order your resume sections to emphasize the most relevant information.
- Target a specific position: include only your skills and accomplishments that are relevant to your target job, because adding irrelevant information to your resume hides your true qualifications.
- Include hard numbers: Support the accomplishments on your resume with data and specific examples to prove you’re qualified.
- Proofread: triple-check for grammatical mistakes and typos, because a professional resume is error-free.
