Job Search Don’ts: Regarding Resumes and Cover Letters
By Bonnie Johnson, Marketing Associate

There are many details you need to cover in your resume and cover letter, but there are several pitfalls you should avoid. Want to make a great impression and land that dream job? Don’t sink your chances before you even get started! Follow these tips on what NOT to do on your resume and cover letter.

One big mistake is using the same materials for every application. “Tailor your resume and cover letter to the job you are applying for,” shared Jackie Bass, Director of Human Resources, Christensen Farms. “Research the organization to have a good understanding of the job you are applying for so you are prepared for your first contact with your potential employer,” added Bass.

Objective statements seem to be a thing of the past; they take up prime real estate at the top of your resume. “Objective statements are typically canned and often not relevant to the actual job,” said Deb Franklin, VP HR, CLAAS. “Sometimes there is such a disconnect, the HR Professional will discount the resume and move on,” added Franklin. Save the space normally taken up by an objective statement and use it to enhance your accomplishments and add a marketing/branding statement. “Start out with a BAM! statement about your signature strength, something exciting that makes the reader want to learn more about you,” added Franklin.
