Resume Guide:

On average, an employer takes approximately 30-45 seconds to look at a resume. So let’s make sure you make a good impression. Here are some Lidl US tips to help you get on board with us!


  • Short and concise
  • Identify accomplishments by using descriptive action words
  • Quantify those accomplishments


  • Typos and grammatical errors
  • Provide incorrect/outdated contact information


  • Use bullet points instead of paragraphs. Short, quick, and easy to read
  • Use larger than .5” margins and 11 point font. This is easiest on the reader’s eyes
