A: Another thing that hurts some applicants is their formatting, or lack of. People will put on their resumes the university they attended but they don’t list the degree. This is a huge problem because I am left unsure whether they graduated—and most positions require candidates to have a bachelor’s degree at a minimum.
When it comes to a candidate’s training and experience, I find it difficult to read when there is an overload on the resume. My advice is to focus on the training and experience that are most important and relevant to the position. When there is too much to read it becomes a challenge for the recruiter, who might just put your resume in the “not interested” pile.
