Marisol Mac. resume. October 11th , 2017.
10. Unexplained gaps: There are lots of different reasons why someone may have a gap in their employment history, but you shouldnt just ignore them and hope someone wont notice. Make sure you explain any gaps.
8. Too much information. I know, I know, you dont want to leave anything out that might be important to a hiring manager. However, too much information creates the eyes glazed over effect with readers. Focus on whats most important. The interview can flush out additional details.
Generally if a person is applying for a job in the trades in Canada or the United States, a one page resume will suffice. However, if you have many years of experience, numerous courses and qualifications, or other crucial pieces of information you wish to share, then by all means go on to the second page. On the other hand, if you do choose to use more than one page, make certain that you fill up almost, if not all, of the entire second page. If your writing only fills up a few lines or even just a quarter of a page, take out unnecessary or repetitive information, or change the formatting of the document to make everything fit neatly onto one page, while still ensuring that the text is legible and well spaced. Regardless of your experience and credentials, most employers in a trade will simply scan the first page of your document to make sure you meet their needs.
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.
