Here are the five biggest mistakes that every candidate should avoid on their resume.

Mistake 1: Typos

Typos create a major impact on your impression because employers think that you cannot write it or you probably don’t care. Always read your resume from bottom to top to avoid such typos.

Mistake 2: Length

A good resume should fit on one page, don’t load your resume with extra information. Employers expect you to clearly show how and why you fit the position in a specific organisation.

Mistake 3: Formatting

Always check on the formatting as it grabs the employer’s attention on how your resume is neat and well-aligned. Consistent spacing between lines, columns aligned, your name, and contact information on every page. Sending your resume in PDF format is also a good way to go.

Mistake 5: Lies

Never put incorrect or fake information on your resume. Once the company got to know that you gave then incorrect information they will surely take some strict action against you.
