Many people writing a resume for their first job make these mistakes:
- They try too hard to be clever and stand out by using fancy fonts, colors, clip art or even video resumes.
- They think volunteer work, summer jobs and school honors or adult-ed courses do not count.
- They are not clear about their career goals; they apply for everything and expect their resume to get them “any job.”
- They do not research what employers want.
