When it comes to searching for a job, it is important to complete every aspect of the process. That means doing research, preparing for interviews and presenting your best to future employers. The article “Avoid the Small Mistakes of Job Search” outlines how many applicants fail due to minor mistakes made on an application or during an interview. Below are a couple common mistakes and possible solutions to avoid them.
Tip #1 Avoid Typos – A clean resume shows good attention to detail, so run a spell check, let someone else read over your resume or read it from bottom to top.
Employers receive many applicants and many resumes so as always it’s important to make your resume stand out. However, often times the smallest mistake can be costly. A typo in a resume can lead to the employer choosing another candidate.
Tip #2 Keep It Honest – Employers run background checks (97 percent according to the article). Only put down factual information.
You should always flaunt your skills and experience, but do not fluff them up with false information. If an employer finds deceptive information your resume very likely will be thrown out.
