Attended a Resume Writing Clinic session conducted by NUS Career Centre.
I always thought the best resume is the thickest resume - the more experiences you record on it, the better you look. However, this is not the case.
At the session, we were told that the ideal resume should consist only of one page. One should be selective of the experiences to list in the resume. The description of each experience should include quantifiable achievements. The use of impactful words would be useful.
The white spaces on the resume should be minimised so as to give it less boring.
