  • It highlights your contact information.
    Let's face it, your contact information is the most critical part of your marketing document (yes, that's what a resume is). Make it easy for a recruiter to contact you and get your foot in the door. Adding an URL to your LinkedIn profile won't hurt either.
  • It uses measurable data.
    To prove that you are good salesman don't write that you are a "good salesman", show it with data. Put percentages, dollar signs, numbers, anything that can be measured and quantified.

  • Designed
