🔎 I reviewed 50+ resumes in the last 2 weeks during my free resume review campaign.
Here are the 10 most common resume mistakes I've found:
⛔ Outdated or messy resume layout and structure with too much irrelevant info
⛔ Using a functional resume format
⛔ Using the Objective section instead of Summary
⛔ Too long Summary with too many descriptive phrases
⛔ Experience section without quantified accomplishments
⛔ Not having complete info about your employment or certifications (dates, cities, countries)
⛔ Using online resume templates with odd structure and cliché descriptions or focusing too much on design (using Canva inefficiently)
⛔ Not having a professional title below your name
⛔ Not having a LinkedIn profile on your resume
I must say that these resume failures just keep repeating.
If you recognize your resume here, do something about it today.
Every job seeker is unique and has a unique professional value to offer to employers.
Your resume should reflect YOU and your unique value. Remember this.
Message me if you have any further questions or need help, and like and share if you know someone who could use this info. 🙂
