These are the resume do's and don'ts. You do want to keep your resume to one page. This is really important. Nobody wants a ten page resume to look at. You don't want to have an objective statement. And I know that sounds surprising, but it's wasted space. Everyone knows that you're looking for a job in this particular industry, or else you wouldn't be applying for the job, so 'ixnay' on the objective. You also don't want to include references upon request. If they are interested in interviewing you, if they're interested in hiring you, they'll ask for your references. That's wasted space. You also do want to highlight the results, the experiences, what you were able to create in the particular jobs that you had. Those are some do's and don'ts to consider when writing your resume.
