I recently sent my resume into one of those resume review services, they sent it back with periods at the end of each bullet point never seen that before, is that common? This is for consulting by the way

    Either is fine as long as you're consistent. I personally prefer no periods.

    Everyone I know in banking says no periods if it's a bullet point

    I hate victims who respect their executioners

    haha, yeah, not sure why the monkey shit, I had always gone no period, but since I'm paying for a resume review service, I thought it would be good to ask about it to the board here...

    There, I gave you a SB to even things out. I don't use periods with my bullet points.

  • helpmepleasethx's picture

    Thanks connor, yeah, think I'm going to take off the periods

    Have seen it both ways in the past, but no periods is considered more conventional and you'll see it that way more frequently. The big rule to follow here is to always keep it consistent either way you choose to go.
