10 ways to fix your résumé when you’re not entry-level anymore

By Anaele Pelisson,
We asked experts from TopResume to make over the résumé of a professional with enough experience to no longer be considered entry-level.
The experts top-loaded the résumé, made it easier to read, and emphasized job experience over college experience.
You can use these tips to make over your own résumé.

It may not feel like it, but once you’ve got a few years of job experience under your belt, you’re not an entry-level employee anymore — you’re mid-level.

Your approach to finding a job will need to change accordingly.

No longer can you rely on what you did in college to impress potential employers — now it’s up to you to convey what you’ve learned and accomplished in the working world.

With a diverse range of positions over the past five years, Lucy (not her real name) wanted to find a job supporting the administration in higher education, but her résumé, which read more like that of an entry-level worker, wasn’t landing her interviews.

As part of Business Insider’s résumé makeover series with TopResume, we thought we could help.

We asked Joe S., a résumé writer with TopResume, to rewrite Lucy’s résumé and make it more appropriate for a mid-level employee looking to transition careers.

Joe focused on highlighting the hard and soft skills Lucy has acquired from her various positions. He also emphasized her experience in teaching to position her for entry into a role more focused on learning and development.

Amanda Augustine, the career advice expert for TopResume, explains some of the changes Joe made to Lucy’s résumé to prepare her for the job search.

While your résumé may look different, these specific pointers should help you overhaul your own résumé:

 

  1. Added LinkedIn profile

Lucy already had a LinkedIn profile, but she hadn’t added this information to her résumé.

Joe made sure Lucy customized the public URL for his LinkedIn profile to include her name before adding it to her new résumé.

“LinkedIn is not only a great place to build your personal brand and make connections in your field, but employers expect to find you on there,” Augustine said.

She pointed to a Jobvite survey, which found that about 90% of employers use LinkedIn to search for and evaluate job candidates.

  1. Removed street address

“Gone are the days when you’re required to include your full mailing address at the top of your résumé,” Augustin said.

In fact, she said that many security-conscious professionals intentionally remove this information out of fear of identity theft.

If you’re searching for a job close to home, Augustine suggested including your city, state, and zip code at the top of your résumé and excluding your street address. Otherwise, it’s best to leave the entire thing off.

  1. Made job goals clear

Anaele Pelisson/Business Insider
Since Lucy held several different positions over the past few years, Augustine said her job goals weren’t obvious at first glance of her old résumé.

Joe added a professional title and subhead to the top of her new résumé to clearly spell out her immediate goals and set the stage for her professional summary.

  1. Developed her professional summary

Crafting the perfect elevator pitch is an important way to sell yourself as a job seeker.

“Regardless of your profession, everyone becomes a marketer when it’s time to look for work,” Augustine said. “And your résumé will become a key part of your personal marketing campaign.”

Joe created a professional summary at the top of Lucy’s résumé that summarized her qualifications for the reader. In addition to highlighting her most marketable and relevant skills, this professional summary reframes Lucy’s experience and sets the tone for the rest of the résumé, Augustine said.

  1. Reinforced bilingual skills at the top

“Language skills are often considered a valuable selling point in the job market,” Augustin said. “If you speak more than one language, be sure to highlight this information on your résumé.”

To emphasize Lucy’s bilingual skills, Joe added them to her professional summary, in addition to the Education and Credentials section to ensure a recruiter won’t overlook these highly marketable skills.

  1. Created an Areas of Expertise section

Anaele Pelisson/Business Insider
Joe also created an Areas of Expertise section that is full of relevant keywords and technical proficiencies.

“Not only will this section make it easier for a recruiter to quickly scan the top of Lucy’s résumé and get a good sense of her capabilities, but it will also help her application make it past the electronic filters, known as applicant tracking systems, that pre-screen applications before they are passed on to HR for review,” Augustine said.

  1. Removed internships from Professional Experience section

Anaele Pelisson/Business Insider
Now that Lucy is no longer an entry-level professional, Augustine said there’s no need to reference her internships on her résumé.

“Your college internships, while valuable, will only serve you during your first year or two after graduation,” she said. “After that, employers will look to your most recent work experience to gauge your fit for their open position.”

  1. Used bullet points to call attention to results and contributions

Anaele Pelisson/Business Insider
Lucy’s old résumé used bullets to format all the information listed in her Work History section. While this practice isn’t uncommon, Augustine said it doesn’t make for a visually-appealing résumé.

To make Lucy’s résumé more aesthetically pleasing and still informative, Joe restructured each job under her Work History section into two parts:

  1. A short blurb that describes her position.

  2. A few bullets that call out the information employers care most about like key contributions and achievements.

  3. Eliminated GPA from Education details

Anaele Pelisson/Business Insider
“At this point in Lucy’s career, her education takes a back seat to her real-world experience,” Augustine said.

As a result, Lucy’s education is listed at the bottom of her résumé and her GPA is eliminated entirely.

“Once you’re no longer a recent college graduate, there’s no reason to list your GPA on your résumé,” Augustine said.

  1. Redesigned layout to be more recruiter and ATS-friendly

Anaele Pelisson/Business Insider
“While it may be tempting to jazz up the design of your résumé, it’s important to remember that recruiters are accustomed to looking for certain pieces of information in specific areas of a résumé document,” Augustine said. “The less time a recruiter spends hunting for information on your résumé, the more likely you are to make it to the next stage of the hiring process.”

Augustine said that applicant tracking systems — the bots that scan your résumé and decide if you’re a good fit for the position — tend to have trouble reading and parsing résumé information when it doesn’t follow a traditional layout.

To solve this, Joe streamlined Lucy’s résumé overall so that recruiters and hiring managers may review information quickly.

“With clearer headings and more organized content, it will also play well with the ATS software,” Augustine said.
