A recent survey of 2,500+ recruiter and head-hunters, conducted in the united states, came up with the top 10 Resume writing comon mistakes.

  1. Spelling errors, typos and poor grammar.
    Takeaway Tip: Your application hold the key to getting an interview. It there are careless errors, it directly reflects on your professionalism and motivation.
     
  2. Too duty orientated – the resume reads like a job description, failing to explain relevant accomplishments.
    Takeaway Tip: The employers want to know what you can do for them, Where ever possible, quantify your accomplishments in dollars or percentages.
     
  3. Missing dates or inaccurate dates.
    Takeaway Tip: A Resume that doesn't include dates rings warning bells about your backgound and make it look as if you're trying to hide something. Write your employment history in reverse chronological order.
     
  4. Missing contact information, inaccurate, or unprofessional email addresses.
    Takeaway Tip: Make it easy to be contacted by checking the accuracy of your phone number, personal-brand URLs and email addresses. If you're serious about getting a job, make sure you have an answering machine or voice mail with a businesslike message and don't use unprofessional email addresses such as chickiebabe@hotmial.com, better yet use an email address from your domain name like youname@yourname.com
     
  5. Poor formatting (in electronic applications).
    Takeaway Tip: Depending on how you structure your email and its attachments, you may lose your formatting if sending your application by email. Always test how your application will look by emailing it to yourself first.
     
  6. Resumes organized by job function (as opposed to reverse chronological).
    Takeaway Tip: A good way not to get your resume read is to send a functional resume (which lists employment history by job function), rather that a reverse chronological resume (which lists employment history by date, starting with your most recent employment).
     
  7. Long Resumes.
    Takeaway Tip: Avoid writing you life story. Use your resume to highlight your most recent achievements in the last 5-10 years. If jobs before this are relevant you can list them in a 'Previous Employment" section with just a few lines about key roles. Quality is more important that quantity. 
     
  8. Long, Dense Paragraphs with no bullet points
    Takeaway Tip:Recruiters want resumes to be succinct. No recruiter has the time to read long sentences in long paragraph. Use bullet points to break up the text and make your resume easy to read quickly.
     
  9. Candidates who apply for positions for which they are not qualified.
    Takeaway Tip: Don't apply for jobs if you aren't qualified. You're wasting both you time and the recruiters. Instead, send an 'Expression of Interest' direct to the recruiter to register your details and ask to have your application kept on file for future consideration.
     
  10. Personal info not relevant to the job.
    Takeaway Tip: Recruiters don't want to know your age, height, weigh or what you had for breakfast. They are trying to fill a job vacancy, not find a marriage partner.
