Hiring Experts Reveal Resume Pet Peeves

Crafting a resume that is unique and impressive is the goal of every job seeker. However, there is no one blueprint to follow in this process. Despite that lack of guidance, one surefire way to prevent your resume from making the circular file is to avoid some of these most common resume pet peeves of hiring managers.

Nondescript Objectives

Your objective should never be, "I want to work at X company in Y role." That's a no-brainer, the act of submitting an application indicates interest in the role. What do you want to do with your career? What do you want to bring to a company? If you can't come up with something unique and engaging, leave the objective off of your resume all together. — Bethany Perkins, head recruiter for Software Advice.
