How to Write a Resume – Structure


The structure of a resume will differ depending on individual requirements. You need to research what format and style is right for you and will suit your market. For example, a graduate would have their academics at the forefront and would use this as a key selling tool. However, someone with many years experience would normally have education towards the rear of the CV unless, it is relevant types they are applying for, and where academics are seen in balance with job experience.

Keyword sections help split the resume and provide a great “at a glance” snapshot of your skill set. Its importance that you consider making adjustments to keywords and skill sets according to the position you apply for.

If you have held lots of contracts and temporary roles over the years, you may want to consider consolidating many of these jobs so it doesn’t appear as if you are “job hopping”. Furthermore, if you have held a position over many many years and the position title has changed with responsibility, it is often beneficial that you try to split some of the roles to create a little bit of variety.

Ideally, most resumes and CVs for the Australian market for within 2 to 3 pages, or four pages where someone has difficulty and project or board positions held. But in the most part, it is essential that you focus on providing a concise document that is easily navigated and will sell your skills.

Navigation is key and so is aligning your resume to a position.
