You may be the most suitable candidate for a job, but it never makes a sense if a potential employer trashes the resume soon after going through a few first lines mentioned in it. Surely, professional networking has been made easier due to the involvement of the internet. But still, the importance of a great resume cannot be avoided, as it is considered the foundation for finding the most suitable job. Keep in mind that grammatical bloopers and spelling errors are some of the trash triggers as far as preparing a professional resume is concerned. Apart from that, there are also many things that job seekers are doing wrong. We have asked some career experts and recruiting managers regarding potential resume mistakes that can propel them to reject a resume soon after having a glance. Their responses regarding this issue may surprise you. There are a few things that can make your resume a nonsense one. Therefore, you should know what they are to avoid such rejection!

Bad Formation of Resume
Looks do matter! Abby Kohut, the career expert, lists crooked serrations and highlights a couple of things that may make the resume look like garbage. Mona Abdel-Halim, who is the co-founder of Web-based Resume Tool Resunate, says that he never likes to receive resumes that are with loaded with funky notes. It not only looks unprofessional but also makes the resume difficult to read. While selecting resume fonts, one should opt for widely used or readable fonts such as Arial or Calibri. Most importantly, you shouldn't use more than 2 fonts, while using the italic or bold style to highlight certain portions in the resume.

Immature Resume

We have also asked some other employers and hiring managers, and their opinion is quite apparent! They often prefer to trash resumes which are loaded with pictures and cartoon characters. After all, this is not at all a professional approach!

Adding Templates To the Resume

Long time recruiter Mr. Mike Monroe has mentioned that unchanged or familiar resume patterns taken directly from a word processing program often annoy him. Although he has said that it won't put you in the garbage automatically, it often shows that you've put less thought into your resume in comparison to your competitors.

Jessica Campbell, the HR manager of has mentioned that it often annoys her most when an applicant uses a template or pattern resume, and has not spent enough time to restructure it before sending.

Sneaky Resume

Kohut has even mentioned that she tends to mistrust people right away who have submitted a resume without a date on it. She even says that gaps aren't a big problem, but the issue arises when someone tries to be deceptive.
