Hi Sadie! I’m new to this community and commend you for all the work you are doing in this tough job market! I think your resume bullets are great and use numbers to grab attention appropriately. One minor suggestion, have you thought of swapping your education and skills section? It might put more prominence on those hard skills and you have enough work experience that education can be further down. Just my two cents! Sending you good vibes on your search!
Hi Liz, thanks! Yes, it is now, I used this resume for a job fair after drafting resume for law school applications (not applying for another year as I still need to finish my bachelor's) and education goes first.
