You're saying too much
"No one is going to be counting every line of your resume, but it's always better to keep it concise. You want it to be an easy read, and being able to write with impact in a small space is a good sign of maturity in a candidate. It's harder to write a short resume, than a long one," Levit said.
"Unless you are a senior candidate, with a ton of viable, professional experience, you should really try to keep it to one page," Leavy-Detrick added. Who knew being long was a bad thing, in today's world?
... and making it too hard to scan
"Big blocks of unreadable text are the last thing you want when someone is scanning your resume and evaluating you," Leavy-Detrick said. "You need to break up the text, either with separate paragraphs or bullet points." Levit suggests starting with one sentence outlining your experience in a certain job, followed by a few quick bullet points that outline some of your major accomplishments, loaded with industry keywords.
