Top 6 Résumé Mistakes | CV Saviour

Of course, it goes without saying that you should run a spell check on your résumé, but this won’t always catch every mistake. Make a point of reading your résumé out loud to spot any awkward phrasing or misplaced words, commas or other punctuation marks.

Having someone else read it can help too, as it can be difficult to spot errors in your own writing.

Also make sure to double check information like your phone number and email address, because just one wrong number or symbol here could destroy all your efforts.
