Day in and day out, I help people evaluate their resume strategies, and after more than 19 years of taking note of such things, here are the ten (in no particular order) most common strategic blunders I have seen people make on their resume:
Understanding the proper way to write a resume takes hard work and time, so learning how to rewrite, edit and proof read the finished article is important. Get into the habit of asking a friend or family member to read your resume before you send it. Basic errors such as poor spelling, bad grammar and punctuation are common. Errors are easy to change if your resume is thoroughly checked. Even if you have edited and proofed your resume, still get someone else to read and review it.
An attractive, strategically sound resume can speed you along on your job search. But beware, there are strategic blunders that you can make on your resume that will hinder your job search and, in some cases, bring it to a screeching halt. With today's technology, nearly everyone has an attractive print shop quality resume. However, the keys to an exceptional resume do not lie in the appearance, but in content and organization, i.e. strategy. How important is resume strategy? I have witnessed qualified clients who went literally from zero interviews to more interviews than they could handle by changing nothing more than their resume content and organization. If you want to get the most out of your resume, you need to come up with a resume strategy that will work best for you in your particular situation. Also, you must avoid the strategic pitfalls that every resume writer needs to be aware.
