Hi guys,

I have nearly 1.5 years experience in a compliance/regulatory function. I'm trying to keep my resume up to date and would love some feedback on how I can improve it.

Thanks!

Update: New, and hopefully improved resume: http://www.razume.com/documents/26996

it put me too sleep, less bullets bro

Gonna make a slightly different comment. The # of bullet points isn't the problem here - it's the lack of division. If you can group you bullet points based on project/deal or something like that, it should be fine.

Are you trying to get out of your BO role?

Okay, 1) Try to follow the M&I template

The problem (or one of the benefits) of my current job is that I'm a generalist, so I do a little bit of everything. It's kind of hard to delete bullet points because then I'll be leaving out something I have experience in that may be helpful or attractive to employers when I'm searching for a new job. I personally prefer having my hand in everything instead of just being focused on a more specific area, I feel like I can gauge the pulse of the business better.

And I'm not really looking to change fields. I love compliance. I like law, the work interests me, the pay isn't awful, and I'm out of the office by 4:30. Who can really complain?

Couldn't agree more with the posts. So so boring and I just won't even bother reading through what looks like an essay on a resume. Putting every single detail is not helpful at all. Right now since you are not looking for a career change I guess it's fine. But keep in mind to tailor your work exp to the intended audience and position. Listing everything you did in your job will end up hurting your chances - even as a generalist.

Man, horrible formatting. Seriously. I mean, can't you see it?

The HBS guys have MAD SWAGGER. They frequently wear their class jackets to boston bars, strutting and acting like they own the joint. They just ooze success, confidence, swagger, basically attributes of alpha males.

try to keep the bullet point to one sentence and you could get rid of bottom border from education, license and experience. Make these sections all caps or some other catchy font

Redid my resume, let me know if you guys think it's still too wordy. I also followed the M&I template as much as possible.

My question though is my shitty undergrad GPA. Leave it on or scrap it?

Much much better resume and easier on the eyes. Oh tyour GPA though, it's so low. I'm not sure what you can do to help yourself. And take out your SAT score. It's not high enough to be counted as great.

Thanks! Yep, my GPA is my biggest problem. Should I just omit it? It's never been an issue before, and I've secured interviews at BBs in the past without even listing it. I'll take off my SAT, but should I leave my LSAT? That was around the 70th percentile, so it's not super amazing but it's a solid score and may offset my GPA a little bit.
