Resume Tip Fifteen – Avoid Hirer’s “Peeves”

Can I suggest you read “Top 30 Executive Resume Pet Peeves of Hiring Decision-Makers” – by Katharine Hansen, Ph.D. before you use the free blank resume form at orglearn!

Some of the peeves are:

1. Resume has spelling errors, typos and grammatical flaws.

2. Resume is too long.

3. Resume is too wordy, contains too much information.

4. Resume is written in third-person.

5. Resume does not list phone number, only an e-mail address, or has inappropriate e-mail address.

6. Resume contains the personal pronoun “I.”

and more, well worth a read…
