A forbes article on mistakes we make when writing resumes. A lot of subtle points are mentioned in the article, along with advice which is not very common. A good read for sure. I found the style of describing your work experience with a company especially refreshing.
Angry Chocolates, Fayetteville, Arkansas
Senior Software Developer
2009 - 2012
Angry Chocolates (now a division of Nestle) was a specialty manufacturer of organic chocolates. I joined Angry to develop applications for in-house use and to customize third-party applications, reporting to the Director of IT.
I created Angry Chocolates’ first sales reporting and administration tool, including documentation, and trained 16 salespeople on its use.
In my Director’s absence during her maternity leave, I served as Acting Manager of the IT department.
I left Angry when the company was sold to Nestle in 2012.
