Grammar Mistakes and Typos are a No-No
Generalizations Say Nothing About Your Accomplishments
Generalizations don’t tell the full story. Plus, you should make it easy for potential employers to understand what you’ve done and accomplished.
Ex. A: instead of writing, “Worked with employees as a department manager”
Ex. B: write “Recruited, hired, trained, and supervised more than 30 employees the accounting department of a company with $50 million in annual sales.”
