Dear Friends,

Following is a list of items you should always leave off your resume and Linkedin profile when you want to make a great first impression and score that interview!

I hope you find them helpful!

1. Secondary skills
Emphasize, and place at the top of your resume, those skills that you actually want to continue developing in your next job. Do not include the ones you don't want to do in your next job, or you just might get stuck doing them.

2. High school jobs
The only exception to this is if you only graduated from high school.

3. The unprofessional email account
If you're still using an old email's time to create a new, more professional one.

4. Misspellings and poor grammar
Misspelled words and poor grammar are job-possibility killers--proofread several times and have others proof for you.

5. Superfluous things
