ARTICLE: Resume mistakes!



There are several common mistakes people make when creating a resume. Here are a few to watch out for:

  1. Missing keywords or skills: Customize your resume for each job application to match the keywords and skills mentioned in the job description so your resume does not get filtered out by Applicant Tracking System (ATS) apps.
  2. Spelling and grammatical errors: Make sure to proofread your resume carefully and use spell-checking tools. Errors in spelling or grammar can give a negative impression to potential employers.
  3. Lack of clarity and structure: Ensure that your resume is well-organized and easy to read. Use clear headings, bullet points, and concise language to highlight your skills and experiences.
  4. Irrelevant or excessive information: Tailor your resume to the specific job you're applying for. Include relevant experiences and skills that align with the position. Avoid including unnecessary details or listing every job you've ever had.
  5. Inconsistent formatting: Maintain a consistent format throughout your resume, including font styles, sizes, and spacing. Inconsistencies can make your resume appear unprofessional.
  6. Missing contact information: Double-check that your contact information, including phone number, email address, and LinkedIn profile, is included and up to date. This allows employers to easily reach out to you for further consideration.

Remember, your resume is often your first impression to potential employers, so it's important to make it as error-free, relevant, and well-structured as possible.
