See our owner, Becky Heys, quoted in GlassDoor:

Consider Bullet Points

If you struggle with articulating your value in full-sentences, Becky Heys, professional CV writer and owner of Heys Resumes, tells us that bullet points are an acceptable option. She says, “This style can be much more reader-friendly, concise and often the preferred style of recruiters and executive-level candidates.”

Example Personal Statement:

  • Sales Director within the travel industry with over 30 years’ expertise in the travel and tourism sector

  • Can quickly identify your clients’ needs and provide a tailored service, increasing the pipeline to meet your operational objectives

  • Strong track record in driving new customer leads, increasing sales revenue, client-focused account management and people development

  • Created and implemented a 3-year sales and marketing plan, achieving the target result of £26m

Why This Works:

Heys explains that this is a brief but strong synopsis of experience. Bullets also make it easy for the reader to quickly scan and understand what you do and if you’re the right candidate. If you do opt to use a bullet point format, Heys recommends the following outline:

  • Bullet 1: Industry credentials

  • Bullet 2: What you bring to the table

  • Bullet 3: How you can help the business achieve their objectives, in relation to the role

  • Bullet 4: A strong, relevant and recent deliverable
