Resume writing Featured

Written by  Lisette Hilton

The way of the writing world seems to be short, to-the-point and easy--for just about any grade level--to read. Resumes are no different.

Resume writing has changed, according to a recent interview I had with Donna Cardillo, RN, MA. Donna is author of The Ultimate Career Guide for Nurses.

She says: Formats have changed. That’s because the people who receive resumes don’t read them; rather, they scan them. The long paragraphs and full sentences that we used to use in resumes are out.

What's in? A high impact format of writing, with bulleted information, and short, truncated (not complete) sentences.

This blog is a forum for discussion about several types of writing, including reporting, content writing, marketing copy or blogging. My aim is to offer readers ideas, insight and provoke thinking about issues and trends as they pertain to one of these writing categories. I’m Lisette Hilton, president of Words Come Alive. I’ve been a writer and reporter for more than 20 years. I’ll share some of what I’ve learned from communication experts and as a reporter. I also hope to learn from you. So, be sure to chime in.
