Mistakes That Can Cost You the Job
Did you know that even the
smallest mistakes on your resume could result in you losing a job you
would have otherwise gotten? So often people make major and minor mistakes
on their resume that results in them looking completely unprofessional
- and not only that, they look as if they are lacking even basic written
skills that no employer wants to be saddled with.
So what are the things you
should be double checking before you ever send out your resume? Here is
a quick list.
- Spell check
- Grammar check
- Email address
- Phone number - with area
- No abbreviations or acronyms.
Include acronyms in ( ) if it is important
- Requirements listed - don't
assume they will know you meet the job requirements just because you
applied. Include them.
- Check references - make
sure names and phone numbers are accurate.
- Go positive not negative
with your descriptions.
- Be factual no opinionated.
Be sure you check your resume
before you start sending it out, so you can make the best possible impression
when you apply for any telecommuting job.
