Overlooked Mistakes in Resume


You may flaunt a very perfect Resume but take care of the following

1. Typos and Grammatical Errors

The first and the fore most blunders would be despite the facility of a grammar check on the computer that your Resume has grammatical and typo errors.

2. Lack of Specifics

Often the resumes consist of unnecessary details thus increasing its length. It is desirable to be specific, precise and crisp in mentioning your area of work and expertises.

3. Attempting to prepare a Multipurpose Resume

It is quiet likely that you may send your resume to few different organisations for different profiles then in that case one multipurpose resume does not solve the purpose. Each Organisation wants you to send them the Resume that suits their needs so you need to highlight the same in your resume so as to satisfy them. Thus instead of preparing one multipurpose Resume it is suggested to prepare a specific resume.

4. Highlighting Duties Instead of Accomplishments

It’s easy to slip into a mode where you simply start listing job duties on your resume. For example: Employers, however, don’t care so much about what you’ve done as what you’ve accomplished in your various activities.

5. Going on Too Long or Cutting Things Too Short

There is no hard and fast rule on the length of a resume. However the ideal length accepted is of two pages. Do not scatter your resume in two pages where if your required information finds substantial space in one page in case of fresher’s resume. Frame your statements in such a manner that few words optimise the purpose.

6. A Bad Objective:

Employers do read your objective. Internet furnishes you with many ready to use objective do not down load the same. Prepare your own more realistic objectives that are more specific and, importantly, something that focuses on their needs as well as your own. Example: “A challenging entry-level marketing position that allows me to contribute my skills and experience in fund-raising for nonprofits.”

7. Leaving Off Important Information

Do not eliminate to mention about the jobs you’ve taken to earn extra money for school. Typically, however, the soft skills you’ve gained from these experiences (e.g., work ethic, time management) are more important to employers than you might think.

8. Visual Presentation:

Changing too many fonts and using too many font styles may create a visual disparity. So it is advisable to maintain uniformity of font and style in the entire Resume.

9. Incorrect Contact Information

Honesty pays be honest. Do not furnish the resume with false information. Double check even the minutest details given. Don’t take things for granted.
