Avoid Mistakes:

SPELLING MISTAKES:

To avoid spelling mistakes:

  Don't use words with which you aren't familiar. 

  Use a dictionary as you write. 

  Perform a spell check on your finished resume. 

  Carefully read every word in your resume. 

  Have a friend or two proof read your resume for you. 

PUNCTUATION MISTAKES:

Things to look for:

  Periods at the end of all full sentences. 

  Be consistent in your use of punctuation. 

  Avoid using exclamation points. 

GRAMMATICAL MISTAKES :

Grammar hang-ups to watch for:

  Do not switch tenses within your resume. 

  The duties you currently perform should be in present tense (i.e., write reports) 

  Duties you may have performed at past jobs should be in past tense (i.e., wrote reports). 

  Capitalize all proper nouns. 

  If you begin a sentence with a numeral, spell out that numeral (e.g. Eleven service awards won while employed.). 

  Make sure your date formats are consistent (i.e.11/22/01 or Nov. 22, 2001, or 11.22.01. Choose one and stick with it.). 

  Choose Your Words Carefully.

  Be on the lookout for the following easily confused words.


REFERENCES:

In most instances it is not necessary to include names and address of references on the resume. If you include a reference, make it sure that the referenced person knows very well about you. It is also advisable to add the persons as references, whom the employer can contact easily. If possible add the phone number and e-mail ID of the reference. Never add a person as a reference, about whom you know nothing.

STICK TO THE POINT : 

Employers have a busy schedule, so don't expect them to read through a long resume. Ideally, resumes should be of one page, or of two pages only if absolutely necessary, to describe relevant work experience.

WORDS COUNT :

Use of language is extremely important; you need to sell yourself to an employer quickly and efficiently. Address your potential employer's needs with a clearly written, compelling resume. Avoid large paragraphs (five or six lines). If you provide small, digestible pieces of information, your resume will be read. Use action verbs. Verbs such as "developed", "managed", and "designed" emphasise your accomplishments. Don't use declarative sentences like "I developed the ..." or "I assisted in ...", leave out the "I". Avoid passive constructions, such as "was responsible for managing". Just say, "managed": that sounds stronger and more active.

HONESTY IS A GOOD POLICY :

Employers will feel more comfortable hiring you if they can verify your accomplishments. There is a difference between making the most of your experience and exaggerating or falsifying it. A falsified resume can cost you the job later.

DOUBLE-CHECK FOR MISTAKES :

Check your resume for correct grammar and spelling - evidence of good communication skills and attention to detail. Nothing can ruin your chances of getting a job faster than submitting a resume filled with preventable mistakes. Make your resume easy on the eye. Use normal margins (1" on the top and bottom, 1.25" on the sides) and don't cram your text on the page. Allow for some space between the different sections. Avoid unusual or exotic fonts. Preferred fonts: Arial and Times Roman
