Five Resume Mistakes You Should Avoid

Five Resume Mistakes You Should Avoid

Everyone’s made a mistake or three at one point or another in their career. The mistakes that sting the most are ones that can cost a job, or a potential job. My mistake involves a resume with a typo.

Over the course of a few months I interviewed several times with the same company. Prior to my final interview, the HR Recruiter asked for an updated resume. I happily obliged her request and made the update. At the same time a rogue key, courtesy of my laptop’s over-sensitive keyp...

    All of a human being's capabilities reflected on a piece of paper? Please! Résumés are one of many examples of the stupidity of the status quo of the Corporate World, and while I sadly admit that I have to distribute them as well, I oppose the idea. Many are great at making a first impression but make lousy employees, and vice versa. It's a virtually insane practice that does about as much real good as the Federal Government giving the Banksters more money to "fix" the Economy that they were responsible for wrecking.

    We need to go back to a more personable way of doing things, and what might seem to cost more in the short run will save billions more in the long run.

    You lost credibility by inserting the Florida Tech advertisement. What was a good blog on the need to proof and provide accomplisments to a resume fell to the wayside with the ad to visit the Florida Tech and get their degree.

    All you mentioned has it's relevance. Attention to detail and grammer will naturally get you attention good or bad. What I take exception to is the acceptable length of a resume. I have been told by employer's that "if the resume is longer than one page it goes into the circular file".Which tells me that they want the impossible; (1) a employee who has worked only 2 maybe 3 jobs in their adult life. This does not happen anymore. (2) They want a person who does their work for them, why work when the interview is conducted n the resume? Hell with more and more companies streamlineingg so that hiring is done by temporay agencies, how is an employee suppose to judge the employer? Interviews are a two way street. When an Employer is so egotistical that they think it is a one way street. One should know that they will be further disrespected.In my personal opinion, the companies of today while being high tech, need to re-acquire some of the qualities of 30 years ago. They do not give the employee anything to respect, They disrespect employees,and wonder why the concept of loyalty is unavailable. Today's employment market is mercenary.That is a sad state of affairs.

    A functional resume focuses on your skills and experience, rather than on your chronological work history. It is used most often by people who are changing careers or who have gaps in their employment history.

    A combination resume lists your skills and experience first. Your employment history is listed next. With this type of resume you can highlight the skills you have that are relevant to the job you are applying for, and also provide the chronlogical work history that employers prefer.

    Here is one for you. I have been in the Construction industry almost my entire life. We all know that jobs come and go. Projects get completed , companies go under,there are cut backs. how do I avoid looking unstable due to holding positions with several companies over a 15 year period? Or even moving 3 times in a 5 or 6 year period.
