10 Biggest Career/Resume Killers

10 Biggest Career/Resume Killers

1.      Letting a friend or relative do your resume.
2.      Job hopping and never staying with any employer for more than 3 years.
3.      Becoming over specialized so that your skills are not transferable.
4.      An ambiguous and confusing resume where the reader can’t understand what it is you actually do.
5.      Having a career that is all over the map, a jack of all trades and master of none.
6.      A resume that reads like a job description and not a marketing piece.
7.      Not including a cover letter, or repeating the same info on the cover letter that’s on the resume.
8.      Weak interview skills.
9.      A lackluster, non aggressive job search.

10.  Selecting a resume writer based on price not expertise.
