David Mielach says that to get your resume seen you should: Get as specific as possible, avoid tired phrases like the plague, and show—don’t tell—the hiring manager why you’re the person they need.
5 common resume blunders are:
- Using cliches.
- Including “References available upon requests.”
- Listing your ‘objective’ (your objective is to get the job).
- Making vague claims.
- Using qualitative descriptions.
