3 Resume Fails

3 Resume Fails

Can you think of 3 resume fails? Writing a resume that gets you noticed and represents you in a way that will get you hired can be difficult. Many people don’t realize that what they think will help them, actually hurts them. The following are 3 common resume fails:

  • Including Your GPA – there is no need to include your GPA, you’re not applying for school. Unless you have a 4.0, including your GPA on your resume gives someone the opportunity to think you’re not perfect and wonder what class you didn’t do well in. Also, most people realize that a GPA isn’t always representative of your intelligence and has absolutely nothing to do with your work experience or capabilities. Your GPA, just doesn’t matter!
  • Identifying Your Age – identifying your age gives someone the opportunity to think you are either too young or too old. By showing youth, they can think you’re too inexperienced and underqualified. By showing maturity in age, they can think you’re not going to have relevant insight and won’t be able to keep up with the pace of the company.  There is no need to list when you went to school, as that illustrates your age. Your age can also be shown depending on how many jobs you list, which is why we at the Law and Management Resource Center will customize your resume for you so you can avoid this common resume fail.
  • Your Picture – by including your picture, you give someone the opportunity to deny you the position based on your age, race, ethnicity, or sex. Your picture tells it all. By including this information, if you don’t get the job, you might have it in the back of your mind that you didn’t get the job because of one of those factors. Why take all that risk?

Ever think you should have gotten that job for which you were perfect? 

Feel like you were much better suited than the person they hired?

We know the importance of having an effective resume and cover letter that not only gets you noticed for the right reasons, but can actually help get you hired. Often, a resume and cover letter are your first impression with a potential employer – make it a good one!

There are many caveats that go into developing a good resume and cover letter that will show a potential employer you either know what you’re doing, or you don’t. Did you know that you should never put your age on your resume or even what years you graduated from school? Did you know the employer can’t ask you how old you are? Did you know the old “1 page only” rule no longer applies? Not being aware of details such as this can make you look unprofessional, inexperienced, and under-qualified.
