Update for each role you apply for - use the job description to guide you
Start each bullet point with a strong verb and quantify accomplishments as often as possible
List all degrees, certifications and other credentials
Use a modern resume design
Include an objective - instead consider a career summary
Include additional personal information (street address, gender, race, religion, etc)
Go back more than 10-15 years in job history

Write in a passive voice or use 3rd person
