The average hiring manager takes less than 20 seconds to decide whether to throw your résumé in the trash or call you in for an interview.

While unemployment levels may change over time, one thing remains certain: your résumé can make or break your chances to land an interview. And there are some mistakes that can be immediate deal breakers, depending on the recruiter or the hiring manager who reads your résumé.

There is an old adage which says, “You only get one chance to make a first impression.” While some mistakes in résumés are obvious, like failing to proofread, others are easily overlooked. Understand that you alone control how your career story is presented in a résumé, and it is critically important to make sure it is free of errors.

As you write and revise your résumé, there are a number of issues that may be preventing you from getting that interview. In our workshop on “Resolving Résumé Challenges,” learn the most common résumé mistakes and let us help you get your résumé into the “YES” pile!
