Sifting through listing after listing, preparing cover letters, having phone interviews then in-person interviews, sending emails, shaking hands...

It all starts with your resume.

In this infographic from the UK company, StandOutCV, you’ll learn about 9 of the biggest and most common resume mistakes to steer clear of during your job search and how to fix them.
