Five Of The Biggest Mistakes You Are Putting On Your Resume

By Catherine Heilemann

Writing your resume is a very personal task. Make sure you detail all of your professional experience and convey who you are as an employee. 

To get you started in crafting a powerful resume, aim to avoid these common missteps:  

#1. Apply the ‘so what’ test as you write your resume. If you say you are an excellent communicator be sure to explain why in a succinct way.  

#2. Know your brand – what do you want people to know about you, and be sure to lead with that. Don’t make the mistake of sounding off-topic as you run the risk of looking like you don’t know what you’re talking about.  

#3. Take time to customise your resume for each application. If you find you are rushing through this step, then ask yourself – are you really interested in this job? 

#4. Be very clear with the layout of your resume. If it is jumbled it will be read as that. 

#5. Eye for detail. Dot your I’s, cross your T’s, punctuate your sentences, standardise the presentation of your bullet points, spell check, use full sentences.
