You're in the numbers game so use them to highlight your strengths i.e., increased profits 20%, improved processes reducing costs by 20% - where possible. Maintain a clean and professional layout.
Note that this template, and all these samples,
are very basic and in no way do they represent what your own resume could be
and should be. Leave that to the professionals. With each sample page I add a
quick “how to” at the end that teaches you how to adjust these samples to make
them your own.
I've also added a plain text version.
