10. Including negative information. You control what goes in your resume and what does not go in your resume. Though everything that is in your resume needs to be accurate, you do not have to put everything in your resume. To the point: you do not have to include information that can harm you. I like to call this "strategic omissions." For example, if you have significant gaps in your work history, there is no rule that you must put dates of employment on the resume. Will this raise some eyebrows and cause you to lose some interviews? Possibly, but you will you have to decide which is more harmful, to include the dates or omit them. Other common areas for strategic omissions are brief periods of employment, jobs out of your field, jobs held more than 10 years ago, and date of graduation.The Truth About Writing An Effective Resume
Even before the current recession began, Human Resources experts told us that most people are so nervous in job interviews that are too nervous to make a good impression in their first interview, and land a job on their second or third attempts. Another point the HR people reiterated is that the average resume ends up in the dont call pile somewhere from 90-95% of the time. Taken together, these points mean that if you use an average resume to apply for 10 jobs each week, the odds are that you that you wont get an interview until your ninth week, by which point you are so anxious and nervous that talk yourself out of a job, leading to another nine week wait for your next interview, at which you are more relaxed and might impress your interviewer and win the job. So it was no surprise when one study showed that the average executive or professional should expect their job hunt to take between 18 to 27 weeks. On one occasion in my own pre-resume writing business career, I found out by painful personal experience that these studies results were indeed accurate. Remember too, that both studies were done before the recession. The average job hunt nowadays, when even janitorial openings are getting 300 or more applicants, will likely take longer.
