3. Not Using Action Words.
Some people treat their resume like a skills or duties list instead of a document that’s supposed to attract and engage the reader.

Think of every statement as one critical piece of a larger advertisement that focuses on scenarios that involved the use of marketable and valuable abilities, skills and creative decisions.
