So in conjunction with the Workin’ Wednesday series I have going on right now, I wanted to write a more in-depth post about what your resume should NOT look like. Your resume is the most important part of you, professionally. It tells people who you are without ever having to meet you in person. Yes, it details your work history, but resumes can also provide insight into your personality, temperament, work habits and even future career goals.
Therefore, you want to be certain your resume is in tip-top shape. But after doing some research, I came to find that a lot of the points I was going to discuss were rejected in the following article, 12 Myths About Writing Your Resume. From my personal experience and what I was told by professors and fellow employers, things such as typos, length and font size always matter when it comes to a resume. So after reading this article, along with a few others, I found myself questioning everything I had ever known. Now, I’m stuck. In that case, I thought I’d ask you all for your opinions. What do you think are the most important rules when constructing a resume? Please feel free to leave your thoughts in the comment section below. Would love to hear what you all think!
Some of the articles I came across:
Thanks in advance for your input! 🙂
