Free Online Resume Builder Tool: Use this tool to build a high quality resume in about ten minutes.

Done? Good, let’s begin.

The Good: Action speaks louder than words

Mark used action verbs to describe his achievements which is the most effective way to write your achievements as well as your duties and responsibilities.

The Good: So What?

Most of his achievements also answered the employer’s ‘so what’ question. For instance, see how he stated that he ‘wrote news releases that generated extensive publicity for the company and its products.’

Employers are more interested in your results than your job duties. So, by emphasizing how his work benefited his previous company, he has effectively sold his skills and experience to the employer who reads his resume.

The Bad: Profile

Mark’s profile needs additional selling points to have an impact. For instance, he should add a positive adjective such as ‘Highly dedicated’ to ‘marketing professional.’

Furthermore, he could have also mentioned how his experience in marketing and advertising can benefit the employer.

So, a more effective Profile would be:

Highly dedicated marketing professional with over 3 years experience in marketing strategies, advertising and public relations to build great brands and increase market share.

Overall, this free resume example is a Top Resume with a minor blemish. With this resume, Mark has successfully secured numerous interviews and was offered jobs in public-listed companies.
