Resume Bullet Points and Icons

Bullet points are great for breaking up text on your resume. Here are some guidelines on when to use:

  • Contact information

  • Listing expertise

  • Listing skills

  • Education: when it goes beyond school, location, degree

  • For experience, use 2-4 in descriptions; start each line with a dynamic action verb

For entry level positions, if you want to change it up, you can use icons as bullets:

  • Personal information icons: mail, phone and address icons

  • Social media icons: Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube or Facebook

  • Experience icons: briefcase to indicate the beginning of your work experience section

  • Skills: a gear or tool

  • Certification: ribbon icon

  • Associations: a star is an appropriate icon

  • Education: a diploma or graduation cap
