This is one of the best articles I have read in a while about the errors made on resumes by job seekers. This one is especially targeted to “young careerists” or those who are just setting out in the professional realm – a pretty good description of many of the folks who study medical billing classes online with the Allen School. Even better, this piece from TheSavvyIntern provides a “by-the-numbers” look at the frequency with which hiring managers encounter the following resume errors.
Lack of Accomplishment Statements (95%)
Lack and/or Poor Placement of Action Verbs (90%)
Lack of Differentiation (80%)
Irrelevant Detail (70%)
Poor Formatting (60%)
Meaningless Phrases (50%)
Grammar or Word Usage Issues (40%)
Use of an Over-used Resume Template (20%)
Old School Elements (10%)
