Top 10 Unusual Resume Mistakes

Are you making these mistakes on your resume? 10) Using a cutesy email account to send the CV. Any email arriving from snookums12 or bigboy69 that gets through the spam filter will get caught by the human filter before being dumped in the trash filter. Email from billgates1 is probably not going to help at Microsoft either. 9) Mentioning low grades (Hebrew) or test scores. If you had problems in a course, why mention it at all? You're too honest. Emphasize the positive and achievements you can be proud of. 8) Forgetting ineffective information on your CV only to have it surprise you in the subsequent interviews, such as alternative musical tastes (which I have), esoteric hobbies (I would get asked about mixology too much) or even a past job experience unrelated for the position at hand. Every detail you leave on your CV should have a purpose or not be there.
