Pro Tip: When proofreading, it’s helpful to temporarily change the font, or to read your resume from the bottom up — your eyes get used to reading a page one way, and can often catch new errors when you mix the format up.

Larsen also recommends having someone else look through your CV to spot any errors and identifies things to watch out for, like ensuring consistency by checking if each bullet point ends with a full stop or not.
