There are plenty of things you can do to screw up a job interview: being obnoxious, showing up late, not wearing a shirt are a few that I can think of off the top of my head. But the sure way to guarantee that you don't even get an interview is to look like a dumb ass by having misspellings in your resume. Consider an e-mail I received from an alum recently that included this nugget:
"As for some constructive feedback, we saw some resumes with misspellings, submitted as a Word doc, with logos on them, running longer that 1 page, or graduation dates that didn’t reflect the actual ones. I think some QC could be always be used, and I can understand the issue with having one last lingering class prior to graduation - though for a company that has not taken a student in as an intern prior to hiring them as a new-hire, it is not usually the risk [Big Time GC] would want to take. Though all-in-all, there were some very impressive resumes in the group – not surprising coming out of Sac State!!"
SERIOUSLY?!?! C'mon people, Sac State CM is better than this. Here's the thing: I'm busy as hell but I take my role in helping you find a job very seriously. I know Mike and Gareth feel similarly. Cici has dedicated her life to it. You have ABSOLUTELY NO REASON to not let us look at your resume before you send it out. Make an appointment with us or stop by during office hours. We will provide QC.
Read some of my older posts in this section on resumes. Spelling and grammatical errors are deal breakers and absolutely preventable. No one currently enrolled at Sac State is baller enough to have a resume that is longer than a page. If you cannot explain to someone why they should hire you in a page or less, you're doing it wrong.
