Executive Resume Mistakes

executive resume mistakes

According to The Ladders Marc Cenedella, these are the nine resume mistakes made by executives, but I think they’re made by everyone.

  1. Terrible resume format
  2. Lack of a title
  3. Length (as in way too long)
  4. One-size-fits-all templates
  5. Lack of quantifiable
  6. Overusing words
  7. Font faux pas
  8. Graphic crimes

I highly recommend you read the full article.  The Ladders also has a FREE worksheet to help you address these issues.  Worksheets like this have the potential to not only educate us on how to create a better and more attractive resume, they have the ability to help us understand what we don’t know about what we don’t know.
