2. Following old, outdated, and inappropriate advice. One of the most common and most damaging mistakes you can make on your resume is to continue to use the advice from your college career advisors long after it is relevant. They probably told you to, "Keep it to one page! Use short bulleted phrases! Start each sentence and phrase with an action verb!" This strategy may have worked when you were 22 years old with little or no work experience, but this advice has an extremely short shelf-life once your career is under way. Once you get some experience under your belt, you can probably throw your college resume away.
6) Mentioning the salary history is a big no-no while writing your resume. Not only it is pointless; employers may get a wrong message as a result. Always keep in mind that a resume is a unique channel through which you broadcast your skills and value not a way to tell your cost to the company.
Generic Summary A summary or professional profile is standard on todays resumes, acting as a commercial for employers. Most summaries use canned language and focus around skills, not accomplishments. Get in your unique stories professionally by including highlights of value delivered to organizations with a focus on how your skills produce results (results or value added is important in any type of position!).
