Resume tipsSpell Check and "Reality Check"Not Too Long, But Not Too ShortGo into enough detail to give an accurate view of your skills, but not so long that the reader falls asleep. You do not need to list every project you have ever worked on. Summarize, but be inclusiveFormatting Counts- Avoid Fancy formatting with pretty fonts, lines, boxes; should have very basic formatting (spacing and paragraph breaks, for example).
Keywords are Key in Resume Include relevant keywords in your resume, because this is how you will be found. Dont stuff your resume with keywords that are not relevant of your experience.
Include the BasicsA technical resume should include the following information sections.An objective: 1-2 sentences describing what you want, customize this for the job you are applying for.Education: Education background ,scoringExperience: List your past employers and/or major projects you have worked on. Start with the most recent.Technology Summary: List only the technologies you know well.
Have Multiple Versions If you are in more than one role (or have skills that may fit more than one role) you should have multiple versions of your resume available that highlight those skills.
