When I read a resume I look for key attributes such as:
- Brevity. No more then 1 page (10 point font, liberal use of white space) per decade of experience. Publication/patent lists can be attached separately.
- Clarity. Resumes are your chance to demonstrate your communication skills.
- Modesty. Truly talented people can communicate their ability without arrogance or pretension.
- Focus. If it isn't relevant to your job performance please feel free to not share.
