Ella Naamah. resume. July 19th , 2017.
According to the Certification Guide prepared by the Professional Association of Resume Writers, resumes should be prepared in the first person. That makes sense since, as a general rule, when a person prepares a resume for distribution, it has her or his name, address, phone, and e-mail at the top. It would be pretentious and a little silly to send out a document with a persons name on it (first person) thats written like its from someone else (third person). But thats what we do whenever we write a resume in the third person.
6. Failure to address criteria: This is a foolish and unnecessary CV mistake to make. Make sure that you understand from the person specification and the job description that you understand the sort of person an organisation is looking for.
I cant count the number of times Ive heard people talk about updating their resume when thinking about making a career change. If you are one of those people out there putting the polish on your resume as you are about to launch a job search for a new career- STOP. Your resume is not the place where you start your work on a career change. If you are simply looking for the same or similar position in another company, go ahead. There is a big difference between looking for a job and making a career change. Sure, at some point the process is the same and you will need to have a spiffy resume but its not the place to get started in making a career shift.
Of course, just because you shouldn't "never" use a picture, that doesn't translate to "always." When don't you send your picture in?
