Excellent advice here. Thanks for sharing it! Question: Is it ok to break from chronologically listing ones employment history to emphasize related experience? My concern being that if I don’t capture the readers interest within a few seconds, they might dismiss my resume before getting to relevant experience. Example: In 2008, after 18 years in the insurance industry I left (I was a home office executive for a global company). After leaving, I spent 2 years traveling around 28 countries. Since returning to the USA 4 years ago, I’ve held basic blue collar jobs – just because they interested me, and I’ve had fun. So, I’m looking to get back into the insurance industry, and while I’ve a long list of accomplishments and experience, it’s 7 years ago. I’d really appreciate your advice on what I can do to not be too unorthodox in my resume structure, yet get the readers attention from the get go. Thank you for your time! Regards.

Be cautious when reducing the margins. If they are too small, your pages will look overcrowded. To be safe it is recommended not to go below .5.”
