3 step formula for resume ‘bullet-points’

3 step formula for resume ‘bullet-points’

Taking “Best Practices” and making them “How-To’s”

Hi everyone,

In our effort to continue providing concrete ‘how-to’ content vs. just ‘best-practice’ content, we wanted to further explore tips for writing a resume.

While writing this post, I kept finding myself reaching back to a LinkedIn article from 2014 by Laszlo Bock (former SVP of people operations at Google) and I realized that I’m not going to say this better than Laszlo already has

We all know that ‘bullet-points’ on the resume are really important, but if you’re still listing out responsibilities and using a thesaurus (do they still exist?) to dress it up, please click the link below, it’s worth the 10 minute read.

Laszlo did a terrific job breaking down the resume to a tangible ‘how-to’ using the formula:

Accomplished [X] as measured by [Y] by doing [Z] (click to link to the article!!)

If you’ve read the article and still need help taking your resume to the next level applying this formula – please send me an e-mail, I’d be more than happy to walk through this tailored to your specific resume (jpickering@psgstaffing.com)
