You might want to write this down.
The three biggest resume mistakes to avoid.
Number one, using the resume for multiple jobs.
Yes, it’s much easier to send one resume to 100 job postings
but you’ll probably have a better chance statistically if you send 10 or 20 resumes that you’ve tailored to each company and job description.
When recruiters go through your resume they’re looking for reasons to say no.
If you give them a cookie cutter one that’s a strong reason for them to move yours to the no pile.
Number two, not making it easy for recruiters to skim your resume.
Recruiters spend on average 7.4 seconds skimming your resume.
So you want to make sure that they know your point of difference.
Don’t stuff too many key words or put generic skills on top of your resume.
Instead make sure to highlight your skills and quantifiable achievements on the top half
so that they wanna keep scrolling down.
The chances are they’re reading on a screen.
Number three, making your resume vague.
Don’t put your trendy job title that no one understands and make sure that you include quantifiable achievements in your resume.
It’s milestones and figures that will make recruiters want to move you along to the next stage of the hiring process.
