This is for a US-focused resume.

  • One Page Resume
    • keep your resume to one page if you have less than 10 years of experience
    • or at most two pages if you have more than 10 years of experience
  • No Objectives
    • an objective will limit you since it'll exclude other positions that might have been interesting to you
  • Accomplishment Oriented
    • focus on your accomplishments - that is, the impact you had - rather than your responsibilities. What did you build, create, design, optimize, lead, etc?
  • Quantify
    • Whenever possible, you should quantify your accomplishments. If you optimized something, by how much?
