Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer recently told TechCrunch’s Disrupt Conference that Yahoo gets sent 12,000 resumes a week. With so many resumes to wade through, HR departments are unforgiving when it comes to weeding out candidates who have made common resume mistakes.
In my many years as a recruiter and now placing HR executives, I’ve seen the same top resume mistakes over and over. Recruiters are so tired of these blunders that flawed resumes often end up in the trash without ever being considered. The thought is that if you can’t get your resume right, you probably won’t get the job right either.
Don’t let avoidable mistakes keep you from the job of your dreams. Look out for these common errors and catch them before someone else does.
