Do you describe yourself in your own words?
Do not copy and paste examples, use your own words to describe yourself. Many people only give a general description of their experience and do not tell what kind of work they have actually done.
For example, suppose you had work experience as a cashier. A general description would be like this.
- Handle cash, credit, or check transactions with customers - Scan goods and collect payments
This only describes the work of a cashier and does not describe what work you have done. You should explain your work experience in your own words like in the example below.
- Handle cashir tasks efficiently and provide friendly customer service - Cooperate with colleagues to ensure that there are no errors in daily work.
This way, the recruiter can see that you are a hard worker, friendly, collaborative etc. The wording is important.
You don't need to be a graphic designer, yet, think about readability. Important text should be large and written on top, detailed explanations should be small, and use a list if you have several explanations.
This is a small change though, the eye-catchy documents are more likely to impress recruiters.
