You should pay close attention to your application. Here are three common mistakes.

  1. 1. Inaccuracy. They often request you provide exact dates of employment. It is hard to remember those dates correctly but make sure there is no discrepancy.
  2. 2. You falsify information. Do not sugarcoat or embellish the truth. This can get you in trouble. If you stretch the truth about a degree or certification they will do a certification check and that says a lot about your character.
  3. 3. You are unprepared. The resume and employment application match up including dates, companies, and title of each position held.
