Mistakes To Avoid On Your Resume - Articles Surfing
Your resume reflects you. It should be able to reflect everything- your character, skills, achievements, experience, and qualification.
Mention all those things that you think a reader must know. Like:
Who are you?
'Mention all your achievements that helped you to walk differently from crowd.
2.NO PERSONAL INFORMATION:
Don't make grammatical mistakes. They will leave a bad impression on employer. Read again and again to find any error between the lines. Write short sentences about your qualities and achievements. Avoid using too many different kinds of fonts.
You should always show your resume to few people before sending it out. It helps in knowing how much visually attractive your resume is.
A resume is a formal document and therefore use of personal nouns and pronouns should be restricted.
5.RESUME WHEN SENT VIA A E-MAIL:
6.LIST ITEMS IN ORDER OF INTEREST:
If you were studying before applying for the job or belong to a field such as science where education remains higher than job experience mention your qualifications first. But work experience is mentioned before than education if you have one. Whichever of the two will help you more in selling yourself shall be mentioned first.
In resumes education or experience are mentioned in reverse sequence. It is assumed that your recent degree or work experience will be more useful for the employer.
Thus to sum up remember not to mention anything in your resume that can go against you. For example:
Age discrimination is still present and so you should avoid all ways and means that can reflect your age. Employers may assume that you are too young or mature to handle the job. Or may reject you with a fear that you may take there position one day.
