A millennial resume is similar to a regular resume in regards to the information and formatting used, with the added bonus of being aesthetically pleasing to look at. The goal of a millennial resume is to catch the eye of the intended reader, thus putting the applicant at the front of the reader’s attention, almost like a proverbial line-cut.
If you are just starting out creating and writing your own millennial resume, whether it’s creating one from scratch or updating your old resume, we have helpful tips for how to format your resume with examples, types of resumes, and tips about resume responsibility.

When listing your work history, start with the name of the company with the dates of employment to the right (Use months and years to indicate dates. If you are still working at a location, please indicate to the right of the start month and year). Under the name of the employer, list any titles or positions held. Finally, include a small bulleted list detailing responsibilities held in that position.
