Three Things to Leave Off Your Resume!

Writing your resume can be bane to your existence. I am certain having a resume near perfect is something we all want.  It's always confusing as to what should be included on your resume. Some of us struggle with condensing the information included on our resume or even figuring out whats important to include.

Below are things you should leave off your resume:

1. Awards and Hobbies- Including your awards and hobbies isn't really necessary to include on your resume. It's important to keep the information on your resume directed to the position you are applying for. Employers are not interested in what you really do for fun, they are more interested in what you can bring to the table.

2. Excessive Formatting-  Be consistent in your resume. Having consistency will make it easier for the recruiter to go through your resume.

3. Lists of tasks for each job-  Its more beneficial to inform the recruiter on what you accomplished from a position rather than stating what your daily duties were.
