    • How To Write Your Professional Experience on Your Resume Resume Companion’s Free Resume Tips
    • Make Your First Bullet Point Count• Employers tend to be busy people, make your first bullet point STAND OUT• Try not to use a general responsibility as your first bullet point, think ACHIEVEMENTS more than RESPONSIBILITES• You may even consider describing the company in italics before your bullet points
    • Numbers Speak Louder Than Words• Consider using numbers to quantify your achievements, think:• Figures: “Managed 45 staff”• Dollars: “Increased revenue by $1.5 million year-on-year”• Percentages: “Spearheaded marketing campaign increasing conversion by over 6% within 3 months”
    • Don’t Repeat Yourself• You may be proud of your experiences but be careful not to write duplicate bullet points• Even points that may not seem similar to read could overlap in responsibilities• Keep you’re the section CONCISE, 5 – 7 bullet points at a maximum
    • Maintain a Good Length for Each Bullet Point• One to two lines is great, any more than 3 lines is too much for one bullet point, consider breaking it down into shorter bullet points• Very short bullet points should be avoided• Think: Responsibility + Achievement + Amount of Time as a powerful professional experience bullet point
    • Secret Resume Experience Tips• Begin each point with an action verb “Spearheaded …” “Liaised …” and “Devised …”• Avoid Using “I”, the person reading already knows it’s you• Think of your achievements through tasks such as: Budgets, People Managed, Costs Saved, etc.• Don’t give up 
