Top Three Resume Mistakes

What are the 3 most common resume mistakes job seekers make?

1. The kitchen sink syndrome. I see too many resumes in which the writer has tried to include practically everything they’ve ever done in their career. It lacks focus and doesn’t tell the hiring manager a compelling story about you.

2. No customization. A lot of people customize the cover letter but not the resume. Big mistake. Look at the job description. Pay attention to the keywords and experience the company is looking for, and make sure you customize your resume with that in mind.

3. Hiring a resume writer with no business experience. The typical resume writer is simply a writer. I’ve hired over 1,000 people in my business career. I know what hiring managers are looking for, and what will cause them to call you and ask for an interview.
