Introduction
 Many job-seekers, with impressive academic and professional
qualifications, are not invited for job interviews owing to various
errors and inaccuracies in their resumes. A document that
encapsulates your suitability for a job should be error-free. A
resume is the first significant contact between a prospective
employer and a potential employee. Unfortunately, for
thousands of job-seekers, this becomes the last interaction
because this vital document portrays them as being irresponsible
and careless.
 The following seven biggest resume mistakes are obnoxious and
detrimental to job hunting and should be avoided.

Grammatical and Spelling Errors
 Job-seekers who present resumes replete with spelling and
grammatical errors stand little chance of succeeding.
Potential employers detest such blunders considering the
owners had time to design and write the documents.
 Language-based blunders portray a job applicant as being
thoughtless and unworthy of responsibility. If you cannot
identify and rectify faults in such a vital personal paper,
how will you handle organizational responsibilities?

2. Illogical Arrangement
 Many job-seekers sequence the items on their resumes in
an inconsistent or illogical manner. It is crucial to
appreciate that potential employers read through
numerous solicited and unsolicited documents.
 One of the most common resume mistakes is to use
functional chronological styles in one document. For
example, if you are at the job entry-level, arrange work
experience and educational background chronologically to
avoid annoying potential employers.

3. Inaccurate Information and Lies
 To forge inaccurate or untruthful information, and to insert
it in a resume as means to having an edge over competitors,
damages a candidate’s credibility. If an employer discovers a
lie, the employee may lose a job or even be jailed.
 Committing such mistakes, deliberately or otherwise, may
have lifelong repercussions. These are resume writing
errors that may return to haunt you long after you are
hired.

4. Unexplained gaps
 Inexplicable gaps in a resume contribute to the downfall of
numerous job-seekers. It is normal to undergo periods of
unemployment. However, when designing and writing your
document, you should never assume that the employer will
gloss over such omissions.
 Interviewers might attribute this to crime, misbehaviour or
ineptitude in a previous job, thus making this one of the
biggest resume mistakes.

www.project-manager-interview-questions-and-answers.com
Incomplete information
 Closely related to unexplained gaps in resumes is the error
of presenting incomplete information. For example, if you
were working in a certain firm, state the duration and the
responsibility assigned.
 Moreover, when using a pattern in which you state the
duration, title and responsibility in a sequence, ensure that
every entry in your resume adheres to this categorization.
Similarly, referees’ contact details should be comprehensive
and accurate.

Clueless Referees
 One of the most common resume mistakes is failing to inform
your referees that you have assigned them that significant role.
Potential employers will call these people to ascertain the
information you have given and to understand your suitability
for a job from another person’s point of view.
 What would happen if your referee tells a potential employer
that your name is not familiar or he has no current or relevant
information about you? To avoid such situations, talk to referees
and request them to be your backers before including their
names in a resume.

7. Fancy Internet Templates
 The internet contains several resume templates you can
adopt. However, avoid unnecessary excitement concerning
formats as this may cause you to forget the crucial
intention of impressing a prospective employer.
 One of the resume mistakes to avoid is to accentuate a
template at the expense of the content. A wise job-seeker
would rather have a simple format that communicates
effectively than a fancy one devoid of content

How to Avert Resume Blunders
 To ensure a resume is error-free, print a copy and edit it
thoroughly. You can also proofread it using a spellchecker or
online software. A friend who is well-versed in language and
grammar issues can also correct the resume. Unless you don’t
desire a job, you cannot forget or ignore the editing of your
document.
 These are the most detestable resume writing mistakes job-
seekers commit. The next time you are preparing a resume,
create time to edit it. Remember that your chance of being
invited for an interview largely depends on having an error-free
resume.
