Proofreading Tips

Five questions to ask yourself before submitting your resume:

  1. Does my resume show that I fulfill the employer's needs?
  2. Are my strengths clear?
  3. Did I include anything that does not add value to my application? (These items probably can be removed.)
  4. Have I spell checked my resume and carefully read through to ensure that there are no typos, grammatical errors, etc.? To ensure that there are no typos, try reading your resume backwards, one word at a time, or have someone else proofread it.
  5. Have I used acronyms/abbreviations that may not be understood by prospective employers?
