The Top 5 Things That Get A Resume Thrown in the Trash

 

1. Does not match the job posting (match key words and tell your experience)

2. Listing previous job responsibilities instead of accomplishments (tell what you did, not what you were supposed to do)

3. No quantitative measures (managed 10 employees; made a 26% improvement in production TAT)

4. Resume is too long with too much information (only place relevant information)

5. Not telling why you’re the right person within the first 1″ from the top of the page (get rid of the fluff and get to the stuff)
