2. Summaries that are too long: This is your resume, not a freakin’ novel. Keep your summaries succinct and to the point.
3. Too many buzzwords: Have you OPTIMIZED HIGH-AGILITY MARKETING STRATEGIES for an INDUSTRY-LEADING MEGA-BRAND?!? Cool story, bro. But turn down the hype and cliche for a second and talk like a normal person. No one really gloats about SYNERGY in real life.
4. Starting a bullet point with “Responsible for”: If you were employed in any capacity, you were responsible for something. Stop pointing out the obvious.
5. Being too formal: Listen, this isn’t Great Expectations and you don’t necessarily need to address your query to a “Dear Sir and or Madam.” Be polite and poised, but you won’t receive 20 lashings for bad behavior if you speak like an adult in the 21st century.
