Here are tips to writing an effective resume: (1) start by putting the "easy" information at the bottom. This usually includes education, certifications, honors, awards, and affiliations; (2) put the oldest positions first -- you do not have to say much about them; (3) next, write recent job descriptions. Include more detail about responsibilities and achievements as they relate to your objectives; and (4) Finish by writing the all-important summary. Use this section to instantly communicate who you are and the value you bring.
