6 Steps to Writing a #Winning Resume

You have all this experience but no space to store it all. You heard you should keep your resume on one page. Why do you even need one when you end up inputting details again in the application.

I've learned to see my resume as my own history of success and an affirmation to the skills and experience I possess. It is a testament to my self worth and value and so take the time to ensure your Resume is a reflection of YOU. Here are 6 tips:


  1. Keep it to one page where possible

  2. Unless you are a creative, keep the design clean, clear and legible

  3. Avoid a mix of typefaces and colors. Two at most or use different weights, (Bold, Italic, Regular, Condensed etc) of the same typeface.

  4. Everyone has skills that they excel at; don't be afraid to highlight them!

  5. Work experience should cover at least 5 years where possible

  6. Use bullet points instead of whole paragraphs - prospective employers do not want to spend time reading essays.
