Use Top of Resume to Best Advantage


Using the top of the first page of your resume to your best advantage is one of the trends executive resume and branding expert Meg Guiseppi writes about in her article for Quint Careers, Five Top Trends for Executive Resumes. Guiseppi points out that since the top of your resume is the first, and possibly the only section that will be read, place your most important information here. It’s okay to move up to the forefront information normally found further down within the “Professional Experience” section — especially if it represents the best you have to offer. If you immediately capture your readers’ attention with vivid illustrations of your promise of value, they’ll be more likely to read the entire document.
