There's a great round-up article in Fortune about the 17 common resume mistakes.
First: Having a list of 17 mistakes is a little overboard (hello, brevity?) but this is perhaps the greatest summation of resume mistakes I've seen in awhile.
Let me point out some of the most common mistakes I see in my work with my entry and mid-level clients:
– Not customizing for the job you’re applying for
– Over-generalization of skills and accomplishments
– Including every single job you’ve ever had
– Ignoring formatting
– Forgetting to link out
– Not using action verbs to start sentences
