Hello Deborah,

I’m Geraldine, with Resume-Now. I have personally reviewed your resume and would like to offer you some helpful advice and tips for improvement. I’ve included suggestions for each section of your resume, as well as guidance on how to choose content that highlights your value as a candidate. Here are my comments and recommendations for you:

Summary Section:

You should always keep your target position in mind. Write your summary to show how your experience and skills will easily translate to your new position. I see you're missing a Summary. You will want to create a paragraph of 3-5 sentences that focuses primarily on your transferable skills. Think about adding technical proficiencies, areas of expertise, and skills that closely match the employers' job description.

Skills Section:

You can really make this section stand out by reviewing the job ad you’re applying for and include any specific skills, abilities and experience you have that will be beneficial for the new role. A well-balanced Skills section is extremely helpful in today's competitive job market and is important to get noticed by applicant tracking software. Make sure to choose 6-8 skills that show your talents and areas of expertise, including software programs, equipment familiarity, and learned skills whenever possible. Experience/Work History Section:

It's often difficult to decide what to write for job descriptions. One strategy is to think in terms of how you made a difference. Describe what impact you had, what you changed or what you improved while in the position.

I notice you haven't provided any job descriptions, which robs you of the chance to communicate what you've done and how you've created value. I suggest you include unique content for each job in your career history, even if the duties performed were similar. Here are some questions to ask yourself to help identify what experience would be beneficial: What would your manager say were your strengths?

What projects did you work on? What were the results? Did you manage others, work on a team or serve customers? What did you accomplish? Education Section:

Use this section for your formal education and degrees only. Licenses, certificates and other courses should be listed in a separate section.

I don't see your Education section. Go ahead and include it at the end of the resume to show any relevant training or studies.

Grammar/Punctuation and Formatting:

And finally, make sure you carefully proofread everything at least twice - do not count on spellcheck to catch everything! Any grammar, punctuation or formatting error, no matter how small, will hurt your chances of getting an interview.

I sincerely hope my suggestions are helpful. By following the tips I’ve outlined in this review, you'll have a resume that will serve you well in today's job market. I wish you the best of luck with your job search!
