Worst Resume Mistake I've Witnessed
Right there. On the resume. What the ****?
Lesson // Don’t list negative things about yourself on your resume. Your resume’s job (and it’s only job) is to get you an interview. It’s not to serve as a history document. Or a confessional.
If there is something negative that will make a difference in getting the job, wait until after they interview you to share the information. Once they know you as a real person (and not just a piece of paper) they may be willing to hear your explanation and give you a chance.
Don’t take yourself out of the running from the get-go.
