5 Things to Remove From Your Resume ASAP

  1. 1. The vast majority of objectives say nothing. Oh, so you’re seeking a challenging position with a growing corporation that will allow you to make a positive contribution, are you? How groundbreaking. Craft an executive summary or “Who I Am” section that showcases your overarching value proposition (or, as I call it, your “So what?”) and speaks directly to the stuff you know the target audience is going to care the most about.
  2. 2. Never mention habits that have nothing to do with the position you are applying for. No one is interested in knowing what you do in free time unless it’s related to your work somehow.
  3. 3. Don’t make use of your official email address of your current employer’s firm. That sends a wrong message that you make job search from your office.
  4. 4. Don’t make use of any hanky panky kind of font that is not even readable.
  5. 5. A lie may get you a job at the start, but once it’s figured out, it will ruin your career for forever.
  6. 6. The AMCAT is India’s first employability assessment test that help fresh graduates to get their first job quickly and efficiently.
