3 Things Your Resume Does Not Need

Kent Nolen

Have you been working with the mindset that your resume is a nuisance that periodically needs to be dealt with. Snap out of it!

If you've so much as thought any of the three following things, you need to evaluate your mindset.

  1. I just need to add my latest job to my resume. I cringe. This is why I see so many resumes that read as a series of disconnected job descriptions with no clear through story. What you actually need is to take the time to thoughtfully add in your most recent position.
  2. My resume just needs a quick touch up. Let's be really honest here. Chances are, it's been years since you gave your resume some attention. First clue: it still has an Objective up top.
  3. I need to tell every detail of every job. If you do, nobody will read it. Instead of boring people with a list of tasks, focus on achievements since they inherently communicate responsibilities. Is your resume task-oriented or accomplishment-oriented?
