4. Resume length. A general rule of thumb is one to two pages, depending on how much space is needed to accurately put down all the necessary information in a readable format. There are a few exceptions. On certain technical resumes, or resumes for corporate officers with long careers, three pages can be acceptable. For academic, foreign, or research CVs, I dont limit the page length.
That is why you must have a very strong and effective "objective" on your resume so that your potential employers can see what you really have to offer and if it matches up with the vision that they have for their company.
1. Being less than a straight shooter. I am more than a little surprised by the number of clients I work with who want to include exaggeration or lies in their resume strategy. Their reasoning is that everyone lies on their resume -- that is how you get ahead. Don't believe it! There is no surer way to put limits on a career than building it on something less than the truth. By lying, you may experience some short term success, but the higher up you, go the more vulnerable you will be to exposure. Companies can tolerate some dings, nicks, and shortcomings in your past far more than they can tolerate being deceived or lied to. The higher up you go, the more thoroughly you will be investigated. Also, at the higher levels, you will run into remarkably skilled interviewers who know how to ferret out half-truths, lies and deceit.
