Mistakes to avoid when writing your resume
28:06In good economic times and bad. Fresh out school, mid-career, in your second or third act. After a layoff or a resignation. Following a short stint or a long tenure. We will all find ourselves looking for a job at several points in our lives. Which is probably why resume advice has always been among the most popular content on Fast Company. We’ve all written one, but no one knows if they are getting it right: Should you include an objective statement? Do you really need to keep your résumé to one page? How important is it to tailor your résumé for each job? Is it okay to omit your graduation date? There are a lot of long held beliefs about résumé dos and don’ts. Fast Company’s Work Life editors have been covering job-hunting for years, so earlier this fall I teamed up with Senior Editor Julia Herbst and Staff Editor AJ Hess to highlight the most common résumé mistakes, offer advice and take questions on a LinkedIn Audio event.
