Do You Make These Mistakes On Your Resume?

 

Are you looking for a job but not getting interviews?  Even if you have experience, you may not be communicating what a potential employer wants to see on your resume.  Here’s exactly what to change:

 

Ø  Your “Objective.”  Replace it with a “career summary” that describes your achievements and what you have to offer this specific employer.  The exception is if you are changing careers.

 

Ø  “References available on request.”  Remove this line; if the employer wants references they will ask you for them.  Add a statement from a mentor or co-worker about the quality of your work, your character, or something else relevant to the job.

 

Ø  “Job duties include” or “Responsible for.”  Instead, use action verbs to state concrete achievements that include numbers.  Which of the following statements sounds more compelling?

v  Responsible for new equipment acquisitions

v  Led a technical committee that successfully justified $5 million

    in new computer equipment acquisitions.

Extremely helpful , tried to go that extra mile for you, honest and straight forward, hard working. Someone you would consider a friend before agent.

Brett Sloan did a wonderful job for me in buying a new home. He pushed nothing on me and was very insightful for what I was looking for. I recommend (and already have) him without any reservation.
