Guidelines for a Well-Written Résumé

  1. Use strong and concise language to communicate your skills and accomplishments.
  2. Do not use personal pronouns: “I,” “me,” “my,” “our.”
  3. Use professional language. Remove slang or localized terminology.
  4. Shorten long and complex sentences. Leave out extraneous information.
  5. Beware of red flags. (Grammatical and spelling errors. Too wordy or too much information. Irrelevant experience. False claims and over-embellishment. Inconsistent work history or unexplained gaps. Email address is too provocative.)
