Double and triple check to make sure that your grammar and spelling are correct
When you are writing a resume, one of the easiest mistakes to avoid is grammatical and spelling errors. This is one of the first things someone reading your resume is going to notice. If grammar and spelling are not your strong points, have someone who is knowledgeable about the language your resume is being written in review it for you, whether it be a friend or acquaintance, or a professional.

Separate your information into appropriate categories
If you have one section with a lot of different bullet points, make sure you aren’t lumping everything into one section when you could have multiple categories. Having things more spread out will make your resume more organized and easy to read, as well as allowing you to bring attention to more specific points because they aren’t all clustered together. All employment experience should be in the same format in the Employment section. WRONG: Highlights
SHOULD BE: Specific Training
Also, the statement, Worked for six months as an employee with double duty as a bell-man, and as a concierge at the Westin Hotel. Should be removed from the Accomplishments section, and instead have its own section under the Experience section in the same format as the other jobs listed.
All lists should contain bullet points
In the experience section, all of the jobs’ duties can have bullet points to the left. This draws the reader’s attention and makes things read more smoothly.
Instead of repeating a lot of the same adjective, use a variety of word choice to make yourself sound intelligent and interesting
It’s definitely not a bad idea to crack open a thesaurus when writing your resume, especially if you are having trouble thinking of different words to describe yourself. Never repeat the same adjective twice, and try to think of creative ways to describe yourself. A good rule of thumb is that there is always a better way to describe yourself than good or really good. There is always something more specific you could identify that will really help bring to focus your unique strengths and experience. WRONG: providing really good suggestions
RIGHT: providing tasteful suggestions
