Your Resume - Pitfalls


Resume - PitfallsAvoid These Common Resume Pitfalls


1. Poor physical appearance due to sloppy typing, misspelled words, uneven margins, inconsistent spacing between blocks of information. This applies whether you create your own resume or use a resume builder. Pay attention to spelling and use appropriate upper and lower case letters!


2. Disorganized so that an employer has to hunt for information.


3. Too lengthy. One to two pages are enough for most circumstances.


4. Too short. Not enough information, particularly in describing what your duties were on various jobs.


5. Unnecessary information. Don't include information that is unrelated to your job qualifications unless it adds to a more complete picture or enhances what you have to offer.


6. Failure to state your job objective or career goal.


7. A simple listing of positions or jobs you have held without descriptions. For jobs in healthcare, it is important to identify the type of employer you worked for, size of facility, types of patients/clients and skills used.


8. Sending the wrong kind of resume for the job you are seeking. For jobs outside your core area or for professionals who have been out of the workforce for some time, it may be advisable to customize your resume to "explain" why you are suitable for a given position.


9. Stating your salary requirements. By stating your salary requirements, you can eliminate yourself from jobs that may have other benefits that more than make up for any salary differential.


10. Sending a photo of yourself unless requested to do so.


11. Dating a resume. Your resume will stay current until your job status changes unless there is a date on in, then it will look out-of -date very quickly.


12.Leaving out important demographic material such as your e-mail, mailing address or telephone number. This is surprising but all too frequent. Also, if you are serious about being on the look-out for new opportunities, include the name and phone number of a friend or relative who does not live with you and who knows how to get in touch with you.
