What are some mistakes to avoid? : Online Resumes

Don't download a resume from the Internet or blindly copy anyone else's look. You will be restricted by someone else's arrangement and not have a place or sufficient place to put in special items. Design your own resume. It's worth the effort. And don't overdo the fonts and type size. As a rule, don't use more than three different formatting features. You want to be readable and neat, not cute and gimmicky.

Don't put down that you type XX wpm. If you're asked, of course do so, but otherwise, don't typecast yourself - pun intended.

If you have a telephone message on your phone that is anything but professional, change it immediately.

A few of my biggest pet peeves (from the recipient's perspective) :

• Sending your resume to any and all jobs irrespective of the fit. When responding to job postings or ads you should only send your resume if your background closely fits the description.

• Making it obvious that the recipient is part of a mass mailing.

• Trying to go around the person designated to recruit for the position.

• Being too pushy….. Calling too often, calling when posting says NO CALLS PLEASE.

• Mailing it instead of E-mailing it (the latter enables the recipient to save it and access it electronically).
