I decided to follow the requests of many of my faithful readers and add a Jobs category to ajsnetworking.com. It was with much trepidation that I did this, since it is definitely not an area of my expertise. But I will certainly lean on the input of you readers and some excellent research sources.
Enjoy this first post in the category – the top mistakes the top recruiters see in resumes today!
- Typos and/or grammatical errors
- Overly causal tone
- Two-plus pages
- “Snazzy” backgrounds or borders
- Writing in the third person
- Clip art or emojis
- Cringeworthy quotes
- Unprofessional e-mail addresses
- Unprofessional fonts
Avoid these for sure!
