What Makes an Effective Resume or CV?

Updated: May 10

An effective resume presents a simple, concise, and organized format, with appropriate category headings, an easy-to-read font, and a header. A solid resume should showcase an applicant’s achievements and accomplishments, illustrated through clearly worded descriptions, specific details, active verbs, and quantifiable, measurable results. It must align with applicant tracking system (ATS) scanning requirements and align your expertise with your career goals.

There are several resume formats to choose from, including reverse chronological order, functional, combined, and CV, depending on your background and career goals. Federal resumes contain more comprehensive employment details, including supervisors’ contact information, salaries, and hours.

We can discuss what makes the most sense for your resume and the specific positions you are searching for.
