Resume Review

Here are things I'd like you to notice about this excellent career change resume.

  • Job Objective statement is needed on this resume because Ruth is making a career change. Without that statement, the employer's first guess would be that she wants to be a math teacher again. Her objective statement sets the record straight and tells her reader how to interpret the rest of her resume content.
  • Recent job statements are highly relevant to her objective. Notice how she draws the connection between her teaching and being a loan officer. Phrases like "soon-to-be adults," "compound interest," "future value," and others help the reader see the common ground between teaching math and helping clients in financial services.
  • One page. To keep Ruth's third and most relevant job high on the reader's radar, we kept this resume to one page. This brief resume also shows that Ruth knows how to present info in a concise and relevant manner.
  • "1 of 1" at the bottom of the page is there to tell the reader that this resume is only one page. It's another way of saying, "You've reached the end."
