Do you make these mistakes on your resume?
Being unemployed for seven months sucks. Seeing someone you love suffer hurts my heart.
My friend wasn’t getting any interviews from her resume that she was submitting to job boards.
I told her not to submit to job boards, but she didn’t listen. And she also wouldn’t let me look at her resume to give her feedback for the longest time.
Finally… after struggling for 7 months, she let me look at it. This is what I found on her resume…
<Basically, these are the 5 steps to all but guarantee staying unemployed>
(1) Use phrases like “Responsible for…” for resume bullets that sound like a lackluster job description bullet.
(2) Have a laundry list of duties and responsibilities with no description as to how well you did at each task.
(3) Still utilize a college career center resume format—even though you are now 42 years old with 20 years of work experience.
(4) Fail to tie any of your work to the job description outlining what the potential employer needs.
(5) Assume the potential employer knows what you do from your title… and offer no detail as to how well you do your job to effectively compete with other candidates for the same title.
After I gave her these suggestions and she incorporated the changes, she landed 2 interviews… through submitting the resume to a job board!
If she just asked for help 7 months earlier.
You don’t have to wait that long.
