Top 4 Worst Resume Mistakes

January 10, 2013

resume5Smashing Golf & Tennis is hiring!  But after going through a bunch of resumes, let me tell you the people we AREN’T hiring.

1. “B4 my time at…”

Before is spelled, b-e-f-o-r-e not b4.  We speak English, not Bingo.

2. “My doties include…”

Please use spell check.  I’m sure you had a lot of “duties” at your past employer, I’m not really interested in your bowel movements.

3. “I left my last job because I took maturity leave”

We really prefer immature people here at Smashing Golf & Tennis.

4. “And I really love to bowl!”

Uh, we are a golf and tennis company.  Unless your hobbies include golf, tennis, or comedic relief, I’m pretty sure they aren’t relevant.  But I appreciate the exclamation point.


If you are interested in applying for an independent sales rep position, please see the listing below.  We do offer a finders fee if you refer someone to us that we hire.  Now that’s SMASHING.
