9. Unnecessary information. While you may think it is helpful to list your age, children, hobbies and such, the employers really dont care about these details on your resume. In fact, in some cases, this information can be prejudicial against you.
In the past, many people would add personal and professional references to their resumes and would also include detailed information about their education. Modern resumes are more condensed and clearly outline primary education, work history experience and job skills. Information such as references is left off. This type of format tidily shortens a resume and keeps the reader's attention focused on the person's goals, qualifications and experiences.
Make sure your resume is clean, organized, and visually appealing. As readers are looking for any excuse to throw it out, stylistic and formatting errors and inconsistencies will send your resume straight to the trash bin. Consider saving your resume as a pdf document so that the formatting and fonts do not change when the reader opens the document.
The listing should include the date range of your employment, name of the companies or person(s) you have worked for, and the city and state where the place of employment is located (full address of employment is not necessary). List your title and your main responsibilities, with emphasis on duties that are applicable to the type of work you are seeking. Your education should include college, graduate and post-graduate work, as well as any courses or professional certifications that are relevant to your career development. Achievements, volunteer positions, publications and interests should only be listed if they apply to your professional work experience References should be listed if requested; best practices suggest not to list generic statements about references being available upon request as this is understood.
