In deep denial about your resume? Sure, a single-page rehash of your work life used to be the standard, but not there’s a never-ending multitude of resume “sins” that can prevent you from landing interviews.
Take a careful look at these likely scenarios–and the fixes behind them:
2) You’ve added an objective statement because that’s the way it’s always been done. Besides, how will employers know what you want if you don’t specify it?
6) You’ve added block-paragraph descriptions of each major achievement or job, rather than breaking up your text with well-placed bullets.
7) Your last job isn’t that relevant to your career, so you’ve decided to use a functional resume.
9) You’re unsure of what your actual goal really is, so you’ve added a strong description of each skill to the resume so that employers can see all of your expertise in one shot.
Remember… even if it’s been light years since writing your last resume, you CAN add quick fixes that will help win the interviews you deserve.
