Valet Resume Tips:

A Valet Resume should be a short summary of your knowledge, abilities, skills and experience, so it should be as brief as possible – usually 1 to 2 pages. Write your resume using small bullet points rather than long sentences. Your resume must be intended to be skimmed speedily.

Remember, you should tailor your résumé and valet cover letter to fit the requirements and expectations of prospective employer and valet job duties. To help shape your résumé, gather information regarding the organization and its business. Match your skills, training and experience to their desires and expectations.
