Preparing your résumé can be one of the most nerveracking parts of entering the workforce. Did you word everything correctly? Did you list the right experience? These are just two of what I assume to be several questions you may face. Let’s take a look at some common mistakes to avoid”
1)Sending Your Employer The Script Of Sister Act 2 Instead Of Your Resume
While we all loved the sequel to Whoopi Goldberg’s comedy hit, sending the entrire script doesn’t say much about your work experience and may even make you seem lazy.
2) Saying The Sears You Worked At Was Haunted
While it may seem like an enticing story to tell your employer, you will want to save information like this for the interview itself.
3) Adding A Threatenting Letter To Your Ex-Wife To Your Portfolio
Often times we let our work and home lives intertwine. This is definitely something you should keep between yourself and your significant other.
4) Saying Your Great Grandfather Started The Chicago Fire
Nobody likes a work candidate that brags about their family history. Only reveal something like this when asked.
