Ensure it is absolutely free of errors
Read your resume out loud to catch any grammatical issues and typos. It is also helpful to have a professional proofreader or a conscientious friend review it for you. Even a single typo could be seen as a lack of attention to detail and can cost you the job.
1. Keep the content concise and selective.
Legal recruiters do not have the time to pore over pages and pages of irrelevant details. Include your most relevant work experience and academic achievements. Your resume should not be your entire life story. Just the details that explain why you are the right person for the job. If there is information that you feel doesn’t fit well into your resume but that you still wish to convey, you can always bring it up in your interview.
