Hello here are some resume Suggestions the advisor asked me to make:
1: Remove Summary ( your cover letter should be sufficient enough to provide this and most employers will not be looking at your summary)
2: Add your Bilingual ability in the skills section 3: Remove your High School education
4: In your bachelors education add the year that you expect to graduate (2025)
Tip: This is optional but If you would like for employers to have a higher chance of viewing your application, only add work experience that pertains to what the job is looking for.
I will be adding my cover letter and resume to the documents part.
