MSNBC had an article that caught my eye outlining six resume mistakes to avoid.
Four of the six items were noteworthy::
- Focusing on responsibilities, not accomplishments
- Including information on too many jobs
- Being generic (which includes having an ‘Objective’ section)
- Poor proofreading
I haven’t sent out a resume in years, but I thought I’d pull up my latest version to see where I stand on each of these.
