Build your job resume today with our free tool


In our ‘Hot Hints for a Better Resume’ article we touched on the fact that it is extremely important to present a faultless resume when applying for a job position. Any minor mistake or spelling error may really be the difference between you being offered an interview or your resume being simply discarded. It may feel like a trivial error will be over-looked by potential employer but considering your resume is the only document they have selling you to them every aspect of it will be scrutinised.

Once you are happy with the content and layout of your resume (for ideas on resume designs and layouts check out our free sample resume templates on the left-hand side toolbar) you should check it thoroughly for spelling mistakes and grammatical errors. Don’t just rely on the spell checker (our resume builder has an inbuilt spell-checker to help you avoid errors) as this is purely a computer program and doesn’t intuitively know the points you are trying to express and won’t compensate for that. Do not simply accept the first alternative word the spell-checker provides either as there may be other words that are more suited to a given situation or description.

Ensure that every part of your resume is present and correct. It is vitally important that you double-check the contact details you included on your resume – if these aren’t right prospective employers will not be able to contact you to arrange that job interview you’ve been looking for!
