Refresh Your Resume for the New Year

Kim Isaacs, Monster Resume Expert

Edit Ruthlessly

As you add new information to your resume, also consider the usefulness of older or less relevant experience. This will ensure your resume doesn’t become unwieldy. Unless you want to return to a former career, decrease the amount of detail you provide for older experience.

For job seekers with 10 years of experience or more, this may mean setting up an Early Career section, where you briefly summarize employers, job titles and employment dates. Other expendable items include obsolete technology and your high school diploma once you’ve earned a college degree.

Proofread your resume carefully to ensure it’s error-free. Watch for information that needs to be updated from previous versions. For example, if your old resume included a summary that stated your years of experience, increase this number if necessary.
