Resume Formatting Suggestions

From DynamicsFocus, LLC.

  1. Format Style: My STRONG recommendation is to follow the standard “old school” chronological format. It may seem boring, but my clients have consistently requested this format. It is important to be able to easily scan the pages and determine (at a glance) where you have worked and when you accomplished certain things.
  2. I also would STRONGLY recommend more information than less and as much detail as possible. My clients are expecting me to identify subject matter experts for them so it is important to be able to convey the depth of your experience.
  3. I would also suggest repetition. Indicating that you have handled a similar role or function and have worked with a particular piece of software on multiple occasions is a good thing and helpful in presenting your credentials as a potential SME.
