3 Rookie Resume Mistakes Qualified Candidates Must Avoid
Yes, you may have the skills and experience for the roles you're applying for, but your resume might be sending the wrong signals. Here are three rookie resume mistakes you might be overlooking.
You only have a few seconds to show a recruiter or hiring manager why you should be interviewed for the role. Dedicating sections to previous employers takes away from the space you could be using to talk about your track record of results. So, rather than sharing irrelevant information about your previous employers, consider the specific elements about those companies that enhance your story and accomplishments, then infuse those details into your bullets instead.
Using jargon only your co-workers would understand:While you may know, without a doubt, that you have everything it takes to excel in the roles you desire, how you talk about your experience matters even more than how you think about your experience. This is especially true if you’re looking to change industries. When you use words that only people in your company or previous industry would understand, you send the message that you’re more useful to that industry than the one you’d like to be a part of next.
For example, let’s say you’re a financial analyst in the oil and gas industry and would like to move to finance in the tech industry. If your resume constantly mentions oil and gas terms someone in tech wouldn’t understand, then even though you have the right experience in finance, they might assume that you won’t be able to excel in the tech industry. So, break up with the language that no longer applies to the new opportunities you’re seeking so that you can show up as the strong candidate you are for the roles you want. headtopics.com
Tackling your resume doesn’t have to be super complicated, and by avoiding these rookie mistakes, you’ll be in much better shape to stand out and land more interviews and, ultimately, job offers you’ll love. Read more: ForbesWomen »
