You have typos
Grammatical errors and misspellings may be the number-one cause of employer frustration with resumes. According to a 2013 CareerBuilder survey, 58 percent of employers said resume typos were one the biggest reasons they did not hire employees. Here are the worst mistakes job candidates have made, according to hiring managers.
You repeat the same phrases
Saying you “contributed” content to a company newsletter is fine the first time. However, if you say you also “contributed” to sales meeting objectives in the second line, your future employer’s eyes might start to glaze over. Change up your action verbs: You brainstormed, you initiated, you managed … you get the idea. These are smart phrases you should always say on a job interview.
