Avoid Making Resume Mistakes

As we know, the job search can be time-consuming, ego-deflating, and emotionally tough. To put our best foot forward, we must carefully prepare and execute each step in the process. And this includes seeking out possible employers. And preparing superior cover letters and resumes. In addition, interview preparation is a must. Thus, to the best of our ability, we must strive to avoid manageable errors during the process. What does this mean? We need to be conscientious in all that we do.

With the preceding in mind, let us focus on developing the resume. And look at many of the errors that can — and must — be avoided.

As Lindsay Kolowich reports for HubSpot:

“Crafting a standout resume is a lot of work. Not only do you have to write it. But you also have to check (and double-check) for typos, even out your margins, make sure you’re not repeating the same action verb 10 times … the list goes on. In other words, knowing what makes a good resume also means knowing what makes a bad one. And while there are a lot of little things you’ll want to check before sending your resume, aka “curriculum vitae” (CV), to a recruiter, some are more important than others.”
