10 Resume Mistakes That Ruin Your Job Search

8. Poorly organized

While writing your resume, you should maintain a proper order of importance. Make sure it is organized in a way that is easy to follow. Job titles are more important than dates of employment. It's better to put the educational details at the end. If you are a recent graduate, then only you should highlight it. More significance should be given to the information that meets the need of the employers.

9. Typos and Grammatical Errors

It may sound insignificant, but a small spelling mistake or grammatical error can cost you the job you are applying for. Your resume needs to be grammatically perfect otherwise it will create an impression of a careless person in the minds of the employers.

10. Unrelated information

Mention such facts that lend credibility to you as a job applicant. You should avoid stating information in your resume that has nothing to do with the job you are applying for. Very often job seekers make this mistake while telling about their hobbies or accomplishments. If you are applying for a software developer position, what sense it would make if you state that you were an arm wrestling champion as one of your accomplishments?
