8 Resume Editing Tips
8 Resume Editing Tips

1. Spell checker doesn’t understand that you meant “supervisor” when you typed “manger.”

2. Capitalization – Use a guide like the Gregg Reference Manual should you not know capitalization rules.

3. Punctuation – Check for appropriate utilization of commas and semicolons. Again, if you’re uncertain, check with the Gregg Reference Manual.

4. Run-on sentences – Check to ensure you don’t have run-ons which are difficult to read.

5. Uniformity – You have to be consistent with your amount use (dates, money, values), plurals, and abbreviations. Additionally, be alert to listing applications consistently (abbreviation use).

6. Instruction department – When you’ve got a degree, list just the year that you got your degree. When you record your dates, (i.e.: 9/1998 to 1/2002) many resume-scan systems Won’t understand that you got a degree, just that you attended school for a period.

7. Ampersands – Ampersands (&) don’t go on a resume. There are some exceptions. One exception is a well-known company name (AT&T). Another exception is well-familiar business terms (P&L).

8. Hyperlinks – All email and internet addresses which you list should activate in your curriculum vitae.
