Many a job opportunity is missed out due to common mistakes that people make on their resumes.
Jayne Mattson, who is the senior vice president of a career management and transition services consulting firm Key Stone Associates, has said that millennials don't take the time to re-evaluate the resumes they send out, Mashable.com reported.
According to Mattson, one shouldn't create a resume that reads like a job description rather than showing or explaining previous work, and should think of mentioning the skills they have acquired over time.
Making grammatical, spelling and punctuation mistakes can prove to be a great blunder if not checked properly.
It is very important to add a summary statement in the resume that reflects the kind of work one wants to do.
