Let your resume work for you, not against you.
You’ve found it. The perfect job. The listing is everything you’ve been looking for in your next position and you’ve got the right set of experience to get it done.
You scramble. You find the hiring manager’s name and email, hastily slap together a cover letter, and unearth your resume from your last job search. Quickly, you add a few lines about your most recent job and save the file.
You attach everything in an email and hit send. Then you see it.
OK, it may be a bit dramatic, but we’ve all been there. The job search is stressful and it’s rare to come across something that actually feels like a great fit. Each application you make requires time, effort, and customization of your resume and cover letter to fit the specific role or company you’re applying for.
Typos and grammatical errors are common mistakes job seekers make, but the margin for error isn’t limited to those two things. Chances are that your resume is rampant with other issues, including outdated formatting and mission statements, a format that isn’t ATS-friendly, or gaps in employment that have gone unexplained.
Even more likely is that your resume just isn’t an impactful depiction of what you’ve done in your career and why you’d be a great fit for the next role.
Mistakes are natural in the job-search process, but the reality is clear: If you’ve committed them, you’ve wasted an opportunity for a job that could have been an otherwise great fit.
