7 Deadly Sins: R?sum?

Pharmacy Careers, Volume 0, 0

  • Spelling errors—Proof, reproof, and have at least 2 reviewers proof your r?sum?.
  • Dirty/unclear print—Print in traditional fonts with a size of at least 12 points, using a laser printer.
  • Poor quality paper—Purchase a high-grade, heavy bonded paper.
  • Weak career objective—Write an objective that is "employer-oriented" and not purely self-serving.
  • No cover letter—Attach a cover letter that introduces you and your interest in the position.
  • Extraneous marks, folds, wrinkles, tears—Keep your r?sum?s in a firm, closed folder.
  • 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."
