Apply Johnson-Sheehan’s five principles of design to create a visually pleasing and usable resume. balance, alignment, grouping, consistency, and contrast For each job described, include the title of the position, the company, the location, and dates of employment. Constrain lists below jobs to verb-first phrases these should describe your responsibilities and your measurable accomplishments. Put the more compelling responsibilities at the top of the list. In most cases, keep your list of responsibilities to 4 or fewer bullets. This rule can be broken if the job entailed substantial responsibilities, you had it for a long time, and/or you need to fill space. Within your list of responsibilities, if necessary, explain what the place of employment does/produces. Spell out acronyms that describe places of employment and clubs.
