First, plenty of people will send in applications riddled with grammar and spelling errors. Always proofread your resume multiple times to catch any instances of this. Another big mistake people make involves including irrelevant information. You want every line of the resume to relate to the job you hope to get because you only have one page to work with.
Finally, you want to make sure you include accomplishments and do not simply list a bunch of duties. For example, someone applying for a waiter position would not want to simply write, "Served patrons." A more detailed, memorable statement would be, "Served an average 100 patrons during any given shift." Those kinds of details stand out more in a hiring manager’s mind, and it increases the chances of you receiving a call for an interview.
