Resumes are the main documents on which employers rely while recruiting an employee. Therefore, a resume is to be written in such a way that it grabs the attention of the recruiters in a single go. But, writing a proper resume is harder than it seems to be and job seekers has to be careful enough while writing one because even a minor error is enough to spoil the career prospects. There are certain things that recruiters generally hate to see in resumes and job seekers should carefully avoid these things in order to end up with a good job.
Any resume which is packed with words, generally much more than originally is needed is regarded to be unsuitable by many recruiters. In fact too many words on the paper make the content look clumsy and recruiters may have a difficulty in finding the relevant information. Moreover, recruiters hardly have the time to go through an extensive resume and so it should be as brief but informative as possible. The possibility of making an error is also directly proportional to the number of words written on the resume. Therefore lesser the number of words is, better is the chance of the resume being view properly.
Needless information is something that recruiters do not prefer at all. Thus writing about one’s achievements in the high school worth mentioning if those achievements really matters and can be the indicator of one’ skills and qualities. However, if the resume looks thinner than expected one should emphasize on increasing skills, activities and internships. Another issue that can have a devastating effect on the appeal of resumes is the typos error. In course of typing misplaced words and eve letters can seriously limit the resumes ability to create the necessary impact on the recruiter. Any sort of error is only seen as the job seeker’s inability to concentrate and produce quality work.
