“The Only Resume Advice You’ll Ever Need” (Trudy Steinfeld, Forbes.com)

In “The Only Resume Advice You’ll Ever Need,” Trudy Steinfeld offers several tried-and-true tips for standing out in a competitive job market.  I strongly agree with her advice to quantify your achievements, from the number of hours or dollars saved to percent improvement from one year or quarter to another.  If you are having trouble getting started, there are plenty of lists of action words or “power words” which you should put at the start of each bullet point (in past or present tense).  I always suggest limiting yourself to one page and using more bullet points for recent jobs than for older ones.   Lastly, and most importantly, the resume must reflect your understanding of the job description and of the company’s mission.
