					   10.What’s your USP- Focus on your abilities and not on your achievements. Try to give
   a detailed summary of your profile and then mention your qualification.
   11.Previous track record- The companies do look for your previous set of
   responsibilities, the tenure of your jobs, had you been a job hopper or a stable employee. So
   try to put yourself into the shoes of the reviewer and then judge where your candidature
   stands.
   12.Photo, document size- Unless and until you have been asked to provide your
   photograph and other details like blood group, height, weight, eyesight, don’t add these
   details. Moreover, keep the size of your resume under 400KB, as large file sizes are not
   appreciated.


         Summary:
   13.     Too much/too little information

   14.     Irrelevant Information

   15.     Poor presentation

   16.     Spelling mistakes

   17.     Not targeted to position

   18.     No personality or enthusiasm

   If you are a job seeker, your resume is the most important piece of written work you will
   ever create. Make it good or don’t be surprised when that rejection letter arrives in your
   email or mail box.
Be careful!
