How do you change tense on a resume?

I need help with changing the tense on my resume.


Answer by  Freddie12 (77)

For a resume, use present or past tense, but use it consistently. Review each verb to ensure it matches the tense you have selected. Your resume is your first impression to an employer, and you want to appear professional and accomplished. Correct grammar will keep attention on your achievements, not on your high school English teacher.

When writing a resume it is most accepted to write it in "past tense" EX "In charge of Finance Department" should change to" Managed or Administered Finance Department

Experts do not agree on changing tenses on resumes. Some say that one should not change tense (all present or past tense); other say that one should use past tense for past jobs, while one uses present tense on current jobs.
