FastCompany Magazine

The official Tumblr of Fast Company.

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.
