2. Start phrases with action verbs
It was achieved! It was achieved! Sold! Launched! To accurately describe your accomplishments and skills, choose the most powerful and engaging verbs that you can find.

3. For each job or achievement, use the correct verb tense
Use the past tense if you are referring to a job you have held in the past, or an achievement you have already achieved. Use the present tense if you are referring to a job that you hold currently or an achievement that you are working towards.
4. Make your resume simple to read
A resume should be simple with plenty of white space. Each section should not exceed 7 lines. You can add more lines to a section or paragraph if you have more. You can only read 7 lines in any of the sections you are currently reading.
