Here is a second part of the article about the most common resume mistakes:
Make sure you highlight your achievements, not just your responsibilities. And when you’re applying for a job, tailor your resume to fit that specific job. Don’t send a one-size-fits-all resume.
Oh, and don’t bother putting references on your resume. Employers don’t need them yet, so just be ready to give them if they ask.
Don’t use passive language – it can make you sound boring and unimpressive. Instead, use active language to describe what you accomplished and what you were responsible for.
Don’t focus too much on just listing your job duties – employers want to see what you achieved and how you went above and beyond. Give specific examples of what you did to stand out.
