A good resume won't get you a job.
But a bad resume can keep you from one.
A resume is an important component of many job campaigns. It helps to introduce you to prospective employers and gives decision-makers a compelling reason to contact you for an interview and consider you for a position.
Companies often receive dozens—if not hundreds—of responses to each ad they post online or print in the newspaper. They don't have time to interview every job seeker, regardless of the qualifications. So even well-written resumes from well-qualified candidates can end up in the corporate trash bin.
Picky, picky, picky...
Decision-makers vary, but it's fair to say that some are downright picky when it comes to reviewing resumes and selecting candidates for interviews. Resumes with careless punctuation, typos and misspellings are often rejected because they represent the quality of the candidate and his or her work.
Sad (and maybe unfair), but it happens!
