15 Clear, compelling text 1) Write full sentences to describe the roles you've noted under each section. 2) Begin each sentence with a Power Verb. 3) Rank the bullet points in order of your most important accomplishments.

16 Never include any descriptions on your resume that aren't true or don't fairly represent your experience. Never overstate. Most importantly, never try to do this alone! Always ask for help reviewing yours.
