Give ‘em problems.

No, we’re not encouraging you to make problems for a potential employer. But we are encouraging you to describe problems you’ve faced in past product launches as well as how you’ve solved those problems. By showing recruiters exactly how you’ve applied your problem-solving skills, you’ll stand out as an excellent candidate.

Keep it short.

You have a lot of responsibilities, and a lot to say. But still, you should try to keep you bullet points short—one to two lines, at max. If they get any longer, not only will your resume become more difficult to understand, but it can hint that you’re trying to get at too many different things at once. Keep your bullet points short, sweet, and to the point.

Ask for advice.

You’re used to collaborating, so this tip should be easy for you: ask a friend or coworker to look over your resume. When you stare at a document for a long time, sometimes you can no longer see its strengths and weaknesses. Gaining a fresh and objective perspective can help you identify areas for improvement.
