  • consolidate your personal information into 3 lines max. No double lines. Also use consistent formatting as you did in body text (not bolded).

  • can you elaborate more on your current position? Very generic.

  • you only graduated 2 years ago, you shouldn't have 3 pages. Elaborate more on recent and more reverent experiences, less so on older or less-relevant experience. Revisit lines with one word carried over, etc.

  • move experience before education now that you've graduated and have plenty of experience.

  • reference should be a separate page available on request.

  • leave off things that don't pertain to your job or being a good employee - make sure you feel comfortable with all things listed in skills as it's fair game to be interviewed on. Good luck!
