In this chapter you will find the answers to questions such as: How should I lay out the Work Experience section? How can I make my key words stand out, yet not be too obtrusive? How should I describe internships and other research experiences? How can I highlight how my work experience fits in with the post I am applying for? What key words should I try to insert? You will also learn how to deal with ‘jobs’ that don’t immediately seem to fit under the heading ‘Work Experience’.
