When writing a resume, avoid making common mistakes that can jeopardize your chances of getting an interview.
Don't use a generic objective statement. Instead, write a summary that highlights your most relevant skills and experience.
Don't list every job you've ever had. Only include jobs that are relevant to the position you're applying for.
Don't use pronouns like "I" or "me." It's assumed that everything on your resume is about you.
Don't use clichés or buzzwords. Use language that is clear and easy to understand.
Don't make grammar or spelling mistakes. Proofread your resume multiple times before submitting it.
Write about something that will make the reader want to learn more about you.
Don't use unprofessional email addresses or social media handles. Create a new email address that is your social media handle.
Don't include irrelevant information. Only include information that is relevant to the job you're applying for.
Don't make your resume too long. Keep it to one or two pages at most.
Don't forget to include your contact information. Make sure your resume includes your name, phone number, and email address.
