A well written resume matters

This document is your pitch on which role(s) you are most likely to be productive in. That should be the theme of the resume.

 

You might want to consider writing a resume with 3 sections

Summary

Introduce yourself in 1 - 2 lines focused on what role(s) you will be proficient in and have done well in your career

 

Follow this with  3 - 5 bullets with accomplishments which support the opening statement

Keep the summary focused on key accomplishments which bring out what you will be quickly productive in. Avoid cluttering it up with multiple skills and disjointed experiences. These can convey an impression of lack of specialization and purpose.

Use adjectives like "enthusiastic, team player, passionate, people leader, goal focused" only if you can back them with specific examples of related accomplishments.

Professional experience

Outline past roles and experiences chronologically. Since you have already presented a summary of your accomplishments, use this section to outline where you have worked, how long, and what you accomplished there.

Again, think about the role(s) which you are applying for and first outline accomplishments which are relevant to that role. If you can bring out a recurring theme of experiences/accomplishments across multiple jobs, do it. It demonstrates that you have tenured experience in a type of work and will hence be productive at it.

For example, if you are applying for a sales role, bring out relevant client pursuits / order wins / business growth in each role. Similarly if you are applying for a project delivery role in say IoT, highlight IoT specific or contiguous experiences/accomplishments in past roles.

Education & professional associations

A brief mention of which ones and the years

Non professional actiivities have limited relevance in a resume' unless you can show how they have helped or will help in your professional accomplishments
