Resume Paragraph Style

As you write your resume, make it your primary objective to present your information in a clear, easy-to-read manner.

Generally speaking, providing Professional Experience or Career Accomplishments in a bulleted format will offer information in an easily-digestible format.

Bullets vs. Paragraphs

Hiring managers are busier than ever, reading more and more applicant resumes. When faced with a resume that is heavy with blocks of uninterrupted text, verses one in which the information is presented in a clean, easy-to-read, bulleted format, which do you think a hiring manager will choose?

Here's an example of a resume paragraph without bullets:

Configured and supported company's PC's in heterogeneous LAN environment with over 350 users; supported company LAN/WAN, including installation and configuration of company routers, switches, and hubs. Led three person team supporting operations for Novell 4.11 file, print, Unix, and Windows NT 4.0 servers, as well as Windows NT 4.0 workstations, Windows 95 & 98 desktops, and remote access laptops. Administered and managed security for remote access service through Windows NT 4.0 servers to access corporate LAN/WAN. Designed/developed standard desktop environment and prepared system images for deployment. Supported Lotus Notes 4.6 clients, including remote replication of server databases. Wrote and distributed procedures for end-users and technicians for upgrading and implementing system/software rollouts.

Here's the same resume paragraph in a bulleted format:

  • Configured and supported company's PC's in heterogeneous LAN environment with over 350 users; supported company LAN/WAN, including installation and configuration of company routers, switches, and hubs.
  • Led three person team supporting operations for Novell 4.11 file, print, Unix, and Windows NT 4.0 servers, as well as Windows NT 4.0 workstations, Windows 95 & 98 desktops, and remote access laptops.
  • Administered and managed security for remote access service through Windows NT 4.0 servers to access corporate LAN/WAN.
  • Designed/developed standard desktop environment and prepared system images for deployment.
  • Supported Lotus Notes 4.6 clients, including remote replication of server databases.
  • Wrote and distributed procedures for end-users and technicians for upgrading and implementing system/software rollouts.

In the first paragraph, the information is uninterrupted and too dense, making it harder to determine the applicant's experience. The second paragraph presents the same information more clearly.
