You also don’t want to list your job duties without mentioning any contributions or accomplishments. Reading a list of responsibilities can tell a hiring manager what you did at your previous jobs but it won’t provide any insight as to how well you performed those duties or if you made any lasting impacts on the job or company. Instead of writing, "sold watches to customers" you can say something like, "increased store watch sales by 20%."
One of the biggest mistakes you can make when writing your resume is to not edit and proofread several times. A resume with errors in spelling or grammar is a huge red flag to hiring managers. Communications skills are essential in almost every industry and attention to detail is highly valued as well. A sloppy resume can cause you to get passed over for a position you may have otherwise gotten an interview for.
