Every line of your résumé exists to win you an interview. If it is not impressive, or essential, do not include it.

The fact of the thing is that recruiters are not personally judging your resume errors. Though it might seem so somewhat, they are experts who are trying toward solving a need for their manager or client. Thus, as much as your resume reveals the person/proficient you are, who recruiters submit for concern says somewhat about them skillfully as well.

Your professional skills plus credentials might be impressive. However, if your resume has one or a blend of the cringe-inducing errors above, it will not work. It will not ever get placed in front of an employing manager. Don’t make these mistakes when writing a resume.
