5 Mistakes to Fix on Your Resume-Right
Resume Mistake # 1
Your Resume is missing vital projects and examples of when you have demonstrated relevant work. This means that you won’t appear as good as what you really are, and will miss out on interviews.
Eg. You’ve made sweeping statements about your ability, and not defined the top 3 projects you’ve worked on over the last 3-5 years.
Resume Mistake # 2
When you’ve described your achievements, you haven’t articulated the context of the situation, or probably defined the results you have generated in measurable terms.
Eg Generated $3M in Sales upon designing and implementing a inbound marketing campaign.
Resume Mistake # 3
Your address is missing from your resume, so recruiters and employers don’t know where you are located. They then tend to assume you live far away, and are not easily available for interview.
Resume Mistake # 4
Your resume is missing the keywords relevant to the job and industry you are targeting, so you don’t get shortlisted when the recruiter or employer uses a data base search to retrieve all the relevant job applications.
Resume Mistake # 5
Your LinkedIn profile is missing, so recruiters may overlook your application in favour for an applicant who has supplied their LinkedIn details, as the recruiter and employer have grown to trust those candidates more, as they’ve read their online profile, read their recommendations, and evaluated their photo.
