99 Mistakes Job Seekers Make

As you may remember from several other posts, I was unemployed for a reeeeeeeeeeally long time, like really long – so when this list was sent to me recently, it struck a nerve. Looking back, I made several of the mistakes listed, including not mentioning where I was located. No doubt, it was assumed I lived in Perth because I attended high school and university there – which does not incline a company based in Sydney to give me a job.

I also made the grave error of not describing my accomplishments and, when I actually got an interview, wasn’t always the best at eye contact – usually due to extreme nerves.

Because of the above, I decided I should share the list with you, because if you’re in the market for a job, this is definitely worth a look in as it has some truly excellent tips for your resume and cover letter.

Happy job hunting!
