7 Deadly Sins: R?sum?

Published Online: Sunday, February 1, 2009
  1. Spelling errors—Proof, reproof, and have at least 2 reviewers proof your r?sum?.
  2. Dirty/unclear print—Print in traditional fonts with a size of at least 12 points, using a laser printer.
  3. Poor quality paper—Purchase a high-grade, heavy bonded paper.
  4. Weak career objective—Write an objective that is "employer-oriented" and not purely self-serving.
  5. No cover letter—Attach a cover letter that introduces you and your interest in the position.
  6. Extraneous marks, folds, wrinkles, tears—Keep your r?sum?s in a firm, closed folder.
  7. Impersonal mailing address—Send your r?sum? to the individual who will make the hiring decision?not to the company or "to whom it may concern."
