A good resume will be an outline of your work history, accreditation’s and references consisting of bullet points.You must avoid using long paragraphs as they will make your resume very hard to read. An employer may have to read through hundreds of resumes. Resumes that are quick and easy to read are the ones that get the interview, providing that you qualify for the job.
The purpose of a resume is to get the job interview, not to secure the job. If possible a resume should be a cover letter and one page of your work history, accreditation’s and references consisting of bullet points.
Your cover letter should be short and easy to read, made up of one or two paragraphs focusing on the fact that you are a well qualified hard working team player.
