10. Spell Check
Don’t you dare submit that resume without proofreading it – nothing is a bigger red flag than a resume that is riddled with typos and spelling mistakes. It suggests that the candidate doesn’t care, and that’s no good. Have someone else look over it. This will help for two reasons: one, they will be able to spot typos and unclear wording/jargon. They will also be able to tell you if its readable and logical. After all, you’re going to be submitting your resume to many people, so having a friend or family member (or even career counselor) give you some feedback will benefit you.
