TIP: Top 5 resume red flags

  • Too many disconnected dots
    • Big gaps between Jobs
    • Series of unrelated Jobs/projects: web site design, dba, coding. Does s/he know what s/he wants to do for a career?
  • Extensive keyword/jargon coverage without real stories/projects
  • Lack of progression in responsibilities/salary/skillsets: can s/he handle greater responsibilities over time?
  • Plenty of short-term jobs: commitment problem? lack of motivation?
  • A long laundry list of activities irrelevant to the opening

Above all, do you sense a real person behind the resume?
