Sonja Mairenn. resume. November 15th , 2017.
The heartbreak of being rejected for your dream job is similar with the heartbreak of an unrequited love. Keep in mind that rejection happens for a reason: Its not meant for you.
Sometimes we set ourselves up to have our resumes tossed into the quick sand. Thats right, if you didnt apply for the job you were grossly under-qualified for, you may not have found yourself in this position. So if you know that you can provide absolutely no proof that you qualify for a position, its best not to apply. And while youre at it, stop sending resumes to the same recruiters. If theyre interested, theyll likely contact you. Repeatedly sending your resume to a recruiter is neither necessary nor appropriate.
Add numbers to add punch. Youve heard it a hundred times but it still holds true. The more you quantify your achievements the more impact it has on an employer. Include percentages, dollar amounts, anything that will make the reader stop and really read about your accomplishment.
You did not proofread the last draft. A last minute change might affect your entire resume. For example, if you add a word on page one, it might force a line awkwardly onto page two or even create a blank page. Or perhaps you corrected the spelling of a company name in one place but neglected to change it in another place. Always proofread the last draft as carefully as the first draft.
