Snippet: top resume mistakes

So you are finally done crafting that resume, after much editing and re-writing, and you think you have got the perfect resume.

Or have you? Here are a few common mistakes that you can easily sidestep while constructing that very important document.

Firstly, don’t do up a resume that is too comprehensive, and overloaded with information: this might send a message to the employer that you lack focus. Just submit a resume that hones in on the requirements of the organisation. Secondly, avoid using too many bullet points throughout the resume: just use them to highlight your more notable accomplishments. Thirdly, don’t make your accomplishments sound too incomplete: expand on them, so the prospective employer will get a sense of what you have really done in your career.
