Common Resume Blunders
Sixty-three percent of human resources managers surveyed in a resume poll reported that spelling errors are the most annoying mistakes they see. Other gaffes include:
Resumes that don't fit the position (30 percent)
Lies (23 percent)
TMI — too much info! Don't include insignificant details about duties performed.
Resumes that are more than two pages long (21 percent)
Remember, sending resumes is only one of the eight steps to job-search success. These powerful pages must be used as part of a comprehensive strategy. You will use your resume to get interviews, and you will use it during your interviews. You will get offers and make good decisions. In behavioral and motivational terms it's the person — not the page — that succeeds.
