Douglas, a technical analyst, came to me having gained significant experience within a niche market, seeking to transition into an analyst or market research role. He had developed a two-page résumé which he felt could be improved on significantly.
Douglas’ original résumé consisted of a basic list of job duties. His résumé opened with his education section, despite not being a very recent graduate, and followed with his professional experience. In the professional experience section, he listed all of his duties in bullet points with very little white space to differentiate positions, promotions, or priorities.
