Get Hired!: 10 Reasons Your Job Resume Is Being Ignored

Less is more. Overcrowded, unorganized, and hard-to-read resumes are likely to be placed at the bottom of the pile or moved into the trash bin on employers’ e-mail accounts. A well-formatted yet modest resume is more likely to get noticed than one with several fonts, overcrowding, confusing templates and inappropriate graphics. Your resume should be detailed yet concise while avoiding typical resume mistakes. Employers prefer easy-to-read resumes that clearly outline your skills and accomplishments.

Templates — Cookie-cutter resumes that have been populated with basic information aren’t the best way to get an employers attention. Templates are dull and often limit your ability to create a resume that speaks directly to your individual skills and accomplishments.
