Once your Profile Summary has been written for your resume, the next step — arguably the most important — is to showcase your work history in an easy to read, yet comprehensive way.
When reading through a work history, employers look for certain information.
- Solid work history — that goes back 10-15 years, without too many unexplained gaps
- Consistency — not too many job changes over a short period of time; employers are often suspicious of frequent hopping from one job to another
- Career progression — evidence of being promoted from one position to another more senior one
- Diverse skills — record of new skills being learned
