I was certainly glad to see the number 3 piece of advice in Simply Hireds newest post was to rewrite your resume.
" 3. Perfect your resume. If you’re on the job search, your first priority should be your resume. It must show your value to potential employers to ensure you make it to the interview round. Make sure resume uses active writing to show hiring managers and recruiters what you accomplished and what you’re capable of.
Make sure that your resume is clean and clutter free. Anything that does not effectively sell your skills needs to go. Clean up your resume by using the ever faithful bullet points. Always keep in mind that less is sometimes more. You don’t need to get too fancy with fonts, language or formatting." - 6 Tips For Experienced Job Seekers Who Have Been Unemployed Long-Term - Simply Hired Blog
