Make sure every line counts.

Raymond Valentino had managed hotels or hotel food and beverage departments for Hilton since 1983. When his position was eliminated at the end of 2008, he took some time off and then started serious job hunting this year.

“It’s the first time I had really touched a resume in 25 years,” says Valentino, who explains that he had a basic resume for promotion purposes, but it was more like an internal resume for Hilton.

For his makeover submission, Valentino submitted a two-page resume. At the top was a lengthy section called Executive Profile, followed by job title and job duties for each of his positions in chronological order, with most recent first.
