Things that need to avoid in resume

  • Need to avoid word Resume at the top of the page. Also, don’t save it as resume just use your name so, that the recruiter will find whose resume is that.
  • Date at last in the resume: Please avoid that first because recruiter doesn’t want when you prepared the resume and all. He wants only the education completion dates and employment completion dates. Keeping another date and sending to the recruiter is one of the blunder mistakes.
  • Don’t try to place any unrelated work experience
  • Avoid using negative words
  • Don’t try to place any personal data except contact information.
  • Check grammar before sending.
