Wondering why your job search isn’t getting you any interviews inspite of applying for thousands of jobs. Most likely your resume is the culprit here and it’s time to give it a redo.
1.Spelling and grammar errors
Grammatical and spelling errors may weigh more heavily than your otherwise flawless CV. Because spell-check doesn’t always catch mistakes and can’t always tell when words are being used incorrectly, you should always ask someone else to proof read your work. Alternatively, you could also use a spell and grammar checker like Grammarly.
2.Concentrating on responsibilities rather than accomplishments
Instead of quoting your job description, highlight your accomplishments. Consider effective campaigns, new procedures, sales growth, and the specific value you provided in your current and previous roles. Not all roles have measurable KPIs, but consider why and how you made an impact and what you can bring to your new employer.
For example, Increased sales by 15% in year 1 is extremely precise. You can see the applicant’s exact results, how they got there, and how long it took for them to get there.
