Resume Mistakes to Avoid

  • Don't include a personal information, such as your birth date, religion, martial status, hobbies, etc., that have nothing to do with the job.
  • Don't include a picture unless it is required for the position.
  • Don't include false, inaccurate or misleading information about yourself.
  • Don't include the line, "References Available Upon Request."  However, you should have your references listed on a separate document that can be easily supplied if requested.
  • Don't include salary information unless you are specifically asked to include it.
  • Don't use "I" statements when writing phrases.
  • Don't skip over spell checking your resume.  Misspelled words, typos and errors make you appear careless and show that you are not detail oriented.
