Resume Myths Busted 💥

There are many beliefs related to resume writing that are actually not true. 👇

1️⃣ Myth: Resume should be one page

🟢 No, unless you are fresh out of college/university with no experience

2️⃣ Myth: It should include your personal address

🟢 No, the city and country info is enough

3️⃣ Myth: Resume should include your entire work history

🟢 No, especially if you have 20+ years of career

4️⃣ Myth: You should hide your work gaps

🟢 Never do that, always explain your employment gaps

5️⃣ Myth: Resume layout and design don’t matter

🟢 Oh, they do, resume MUST be well-presented (easy to read and find important info)

6️⃣ Myth: Resume should be as general as possible to increase your chances of getting hired

🟢 The opposite is true

7️⃣ Myth: A great resume will get you a job

🟢 Not necessarily; a good resume will get you an interview, which is the first step

8️⃣ Myth: You should give/send everyone your resume

🟢 You shouldn't; take care of your privacy, choose recruiters wisely, and don’t display your resume on LinkedIn
