5 rules for writing a killer resume that you’ve probably never heard before
Throughout my decades-long career as a wealth manager, I’ve read thousands of resumes, many of them from young job seekers. Almost all of them are plain and boring: Education, work experience and skills — that’s it.

They’re the things that may seem trivial, but that jump out at the person scanning the resume. And despite what you may have heard from career experts, they’re the little details that possibly have nothing to do with where you worked or went to school.
