Job Applications: Quick Tip #1

Quick tip #1 How many bullet points should I have? 

The question shouldn’t be “How many?”, the question should be “Where do you want your reviewers to look?” 

Try it out yourself! Hold your resume about arms length away—Where do your eyes go? Naturally, they go to the section with the most bullet points. Therefore, when organizing your resume, include the most bullet points in the sections that are most applicable to the job posting. However—to get back to the original question—aim for 4–7 bullet points in the sections you want the reviewer to read first and make sure this section is near the top so the reviewer can’t miss it!
