Six Serious Resume Blunders

  3. Using an objective instead of a career summary
  4. Not proofreading
  5. Lying
  6. Not keeping up appearance (ie. dirty or folded resume)

The Recognition Approach

Make a list of times or events when you were recognized or acknowledged


  1. Promotions
  2. Positive performance reviews
  3. Company Awards, bonuses
  4. Honor for participating on a specific event at work or in your community

So What Approach

  1. List, not just what you did, but why it matters and the results
  2. Example: “I was responsible for producing monthly reports”
    What Reports, why were they important, SEC reports, Q1, VP Reports?
    Meet deadlines? Were they Accurate? Etc…
