5 Things You Should Never Put In Your Resume

By Poyen Ramos on July 7, 2016

How many times have you submitted your resume to companies and never heard back from them? You're probably thinking that they didn't see it, or maybe you weren't a good fit. Now that could definitely be possible, but more likely, your resume just didn’t impress them.

Applying for a job is like finally talking to your crush—you make a good first impression so that they'll remember you. Hiring managers receive hundreds of resumes for any given opening. They don't have much time or resources to review each one, that's why they spend approximately 7 seconds going over your resume, until they finally make a decision if you make it onto the next round.

You may think you're perfect for that position, but if your resume has just one of these no-no's, or if you use the wrong font, even color choices, let's just say, you probably won't hear from them anytime soon.

To prevent this from ever happening, you must be sure to leave off these five items off. Here's a video from Business Insider about what NEVER to put on your resume, and who knows, maybe you just might finally get a call.
