Resume Makeover Contest Winner

Lauren's Resume Before:

Many of the changes made to Lauren's resume are simple formatting changes intended to make her resume more readable to electronic resume scanning software. Notice, in Lauren's after, her name is centered on the page followed by her contact information, which is contained in one line sections. Additionally, I removed the columned feel of her resume and added bullet points, making her resume easier to read by hiring managers. Other changes to Lauren's resume include descriptions more focused on accomplishments and quantifiable results. I also removed Lauren's high school job at Subway which added no relevant work history beyond her other sales position.
