It has been expertly-crafted, with the help of industry professionals, in an attempt to get you get hired as quickly as possible.
Incorrect Summary Length
A well-written summary should consist of four to six lines of in-depth information about your professional background. This applicant only writes two lines, which makes her seem unqualified and uninterested. She also writes an objective, instead of a summary, which is not necessary. Whoever reads this resume will understand that she wants a job, so there is no need to include such statements. In order to make this section more effective, the applicant should add more information about her qualifications and abilities. Right: Talented and driven cashier seeking a position in the retail industry. Extensive experience in the service industry in a multitude of settings. Track-record of providing excellent service to a diverse array of customers. Ability to effectively operate and balance a cash register. Works well both independently and in groups. Adept at remaining calm during stressful situations and high-volume seasons. Prepared to lend unique set of skills to new work environment.
Add More Bullets
The experience section of this resume is simply too short and each job description should organize information using five to eight bullets. Despite being labeled experience, the applicant does not provide the reader with many details regarding her previous employment experiences. The applicant should also remember to use past-tense for previous jobs, and present-tense for her current place of employment. Some of the job descriptions lack geographic locations as well. Right: Home Depot October 2011 to Current Cashier
Duane Reade September 2002 to August 2003 Cashier Sales Associate
Funcoland March 2001 to September 2002 Cashier Game Advisor
The right version repairs many of the errors regarding tenses, but this section still needs to be drastically expanded.
Remove Irrelevant Work Experiences
Since the applicant is applying for a job as a cashier, she should only include jobs that allowed her to acquire the skills necessary to actually be a cashier. This means that her jobs in the childcare and home health industry should not be listed. These jobs require a completely different set of skills that do not contribute to her ability to cashier. Remove: Jones family March 2007 to September 2011 Child Care Provider
Allen Health Care Services June 2003 to February 2005 Home Health Aide Queens
Add an Education Section
This resume does not include a section detailing the applicant’s educational background. Without one, employers will not know whether or not she possesses the required level of education. The applicant needs to include information about the high-schools, colleges, and technical schools that she attended. She should also reveal whether or not she has acquired a degree, certificate, or any other type of education. Don’t run the risk of making common resume mistakes!
