Don’t use pronouns Space is at a premium, so don’t waste words. And don’t write your resume in the third person — everyone knows you’re the author.
Quantify your achievements Specific details (sales went up by 50 per cent in 12 months) always trump vagueness.
Only include one phone number Multiple contact points make life more confusing. Use your mobile number and make sure voicemail is active so you don’t miss calls.
