8. Failure to have a Headline: A Profile/Summary/Highlights section at the top of the resume. Your resume should start out, in as few lines as possible, by telling the reader why he or she should be interested in you. Don't let any narrow-minded resume traditionalist talk you into leaving this out of your resume. There are many reasons for this strategy, and two compelling are: 1) It gives the potential employer a quick snapshot of the person submitting the resume. They know right away where you are coming from, and have a good idea of what you have to offer them. They can then read the rest of the resume to see if your claims are credible. 2) It gives you an opportunity to generate interest by presenting your skills, abilities and accomplishments right at the top of the resume in the strongest possible terms.
After reading the resume summary, the employer should know, without a shadow of a doubt, that you are the best man or woman for the job. This is where you will shine! This will be your moment to show your stuff. After reading this section of your resume, you want the employer to be compelled to pick up the phone and call you for an interview!
There are a number of resume formats you can use, so make sure the format you choose best illustrates your skills and accomplishments. Look to keep your resume to one page and always present it on white paper. Hiring managers like things they are familiar with, so don't send in a wacky resume or one with differing fonts. If you have decided to change career then add an objective, otherwise a summary will do.
