Growth Trends for Related Jobs

Writing a winning resume can be a tricky proposition. In order for a resume to be effective, it needs to convey a great deal of information, but it needs to convey that information in a format that is easy to follow and easy to read. One effective way to point out your accomplishments is with bullet points.

Log on to your computer and open your word processing program. Open a new document and start typing your resume.

Move your cursor to the place where you want the bullet points to appear. Click the "Format" menu and choose "Paragraph" from the menu.

Go to the "Spacing" section and set the "After" setting to 12 point. This will insert a double space after each bullet point and make the resume easier to read.

Click "OK" to accept these changes, then click on the "Format" menu again. Choose "Bullets and Numbering" from the menu and click the "Bulleted" option. Choose the type of bullet points you want to use and click "OK."
