  2. Focus on your current and latest 2-3 work experiences. Earlier career history such as internships and part-time jobs should not take a lot of space on your resume.
  3. Include important and relevant keywords throughout your resume.  Most companies use resume scanning software to filter candidates’ resumes based from keywords and terminologies associated to the position.
  4. Make sure to showcase significant achievements such as successful projects managed, key accounts handled, as well as quantifiable metrics that can support your strengths.
  5. Attach a cover letter to your resume when applying for jobs to personalise your application and provide a “teaser” to hiring managers as to why you are best candidate for the position.
