Anyone Care to Rip Apart My Resume - Part II

I did one of these posts last recruiting season, and it returned some pretty helpful tips, so I thought I'd give it another go this year. Please tear my resume apart for anything that seems out of place or could be better formatted. I appreciate all feedback, so let me know what you guys think.

Thanks again.

I would take out "service" in your final heading as it's just one leadership item. Assuming that is an old title and used to have volunteer stuff.

This is 100% personal preference, but I would consider deleting a line or two from the 2017 internship (maybe have 2 vs 3 stock bullet points, or delete the skills line) and adding an 'interests' or similar on the bottom. I've found via both personal experience and anecdotally on here that a line of interests can do a lot more in an interview/screening than having one more deal listed.

Agreed with that totally. I've had people bring up an interest of mine and they have that same interest and we talked about it for a good few minutes. Being personable seriously pays off I think.

Never use the phrase "Banker" and your first bullet point is too vague. How did you assist them?

Yes. My first bullet point for every position is a high level summary. Something along the lines of, "conduct due diligence, financial forecasting, valuation modeling, deal term structuring and presentation preparation on x,y,z."

Be more descriptive on what it is you actually do/have done.

Your DCF did not result in the EL being signed so remove that last part
Unlikely your increased DD resulted in increased buyer interest so I would just remove that part about it being responsible for that
