Solid Resumes

When I read a resume I look for key attributes such as:

  1. 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.
  2. Clarity. Resumes are your chance to demonstrate your communication skills.
  3. Modesty. Truly talented people can communicate their ability without arrogance or pretension.
  4. Focus. If it isn't relevant to your job performance please feel free to not share.
