Resume’s were designed for the 20th century. Based on hard skills, experience and education. Today it is about goal, aptitude and attitude. Before we go over what you should take off your resume, let’s first cover why your resume is so important. Your resume is the first thing a hiring manager is going to see. That means your resume is what will help you land an interview. So it needs to be perfect. You want to make sure it’s highlights your accomplishments, it’s well-crafted, and error-free.
The only problem is there are a lot of common mistakes that people make that can cost you the interview. That’s exactly why I wanted to show you about how to create great resume to avoid the common mistake when applied your job.
This’s 6 things you should take off your resume:
1. Unprofessional Email Address
Make sure to use a professional email address on your resume. If you don’t have one yet, create a new one to use when applying for jobs.
Although you probably have a lot of awesome hobbies, you don’t need to share them on your resume.
3. Anything Related to High School
College education is great to add to your resume but you don’t need to include anything from high school.
4. Unprofessional Fonts and Colors
It’s always a good idea to stick with the basics when it comes to fonts or colors on your resume. And to look even more professional, when you’re interviewing make sure to bring your resume in a portfolio.
5. Obvious Skills
Some skills may be a little too general to include like emailing or scanning.
6. Third or Fourth Pages
Occasionally, your resume might run to the second page. However, if it reaches the 3rd or 4th you may want to cut it back.
Now your resume is perfect. All you have to do is start applying for new job opportunities. Good luck!
