What you don’t include on your resume can be as important as what you do include. Here are 10 things you should leave off:

  1. An objective. Resume objectives never help and often hurt. Not only do they feel outdated at this point, but they’re all about what you want, rather than what this stage of the hiring process is all about—what the employer wants. Your resume should be about showing your experience, skills, and accomplishments. If you want to talk about how this particular position is the perfect next step in your career, use the cover letter for that.
  2. Short-term jobs. Short-term jobs raise red flags for hiring managers, who will wonder if you were fired, couldn’t do the work, or had trouble getting along with co-workers. Plus, a few months on a job won’t typically be useful in showing any real accomplishments or advancement anyway.

One exception to this rule is if the job was short-term because it was designed that way, like contract work or, say, working on a political campaign. Those won’t raise the sorts of questions above, because you’ll have an explanation that doesn’t reflect on you poorly.

  1. A functional format. Functional resumes (which list skills and abilities without including a chronological job history) are widely hated by employers, since they easily mask limited work experience or significant work gaps and make it difficult to understand a candidate’s career progression. For most hiring managers, these resumes are an immediate red flag that you might be hiding something.
  2. Your photo. Unless you’re applying for a job as a model or actor, photos of yourself have no place on your resume. Since your appearance has nothing to do with your ability to do the job, including a photo comes across as naive and unprofessional.
  3. A fancy design. Here’s what most hiring managers think when we see a resume with unusual design or use of color: Does this candidate think that their skills and achievements won’t speak for themselves? Do they not understand what employers are looking for? Do they put an inappropriate emphasis on appearances over substance? (The obvious exception to this rule is if you’re applying for design jobs.)
  4. Subjective descriptions. Your resume is for experience and accomplishments only. It’s not the place for subjective traits, like “great leadership skills” or “creative innovator.” Smart employers ignore anything subjective that applicants write about themselves because so many people’s self-assessments are wildly inaccurate, so your resume should stick to objective facts.
  5. Any mention of high school. If you’re more than a few years past your high school graduation date, employers don’t care which high school you attended or how accomplished you were there. Keep any mention of high school off your resume.
  6. Extra pages. If you’re in your 20s, your resume should only be one page; there’s not enough experience to justify a second one. If you’re older, two pages are fine, but you go over that limit at your own peril. Hiring managers may spend only 20 or 30 seconds on your application initially, so extra pages are either ignored or they dilute the impact of the others. Your resume should be for highlights, not extensive detail.
  7. Your salary. Resumes don’t typically include a salary history, so candidates who include it come across as naive. And by sharing that information unbidden, you’ll also compromise your negotiating power later.
  8. Any mention of references, including the statement: “references are available upon request.” You don’t need to say that you’ll provide references if asked, because that goes without saying. You’re not causing any harm by including that now somewhat-dated statement, but it takes up space you could use for something else.

Interview League’s Gofundme Campaign

The Interview League is committed to helping others and giving back to the community.  We are a woman owned business that believes anything is possible if someone is willing to provide a person…not with a hand-out…but rather…a hand-up!   That is why the Interview League LLC  was formed 3 years ago.

Our objective was, and still is, to assist individuals of all races with the fundamentals of how to conduct a job search, correctly complete a job application, write a resume, dress for success, interview effectively and do what it takes to keep the job.    Our workshops have been held successfully at Goodwill Industries, Whitney M. Young Jr. Job Corps, The Buttafly Group, Jefferson Country Public Schools and the Jewish Family & Career Services organization…to name a few.

Within the past couple of years, we have been focusing on the development of a program that will provide real and valuable job skills to those that are currently incarcerated.  These skills will be of value once the individual is released and will provide them with income upon release.

The key to our program is that we will start working with individuals 6-9 months prior to their release.  We will create a variety of jobs that pay these individuals competitive wages that are placed in a bank account.  They will be treated like regular employees and be subject to job performance evaluations and have the opportunity for pay increases and bonuses.  Upon release, they receive these funds.

The goal is to significantly reduce the recidivism rate and provide individuals with a sense of pride and achievement.

The best part of our project is that once it is fully operational,  it will be self-funding and target REDUCING the tax payer burden!

Once proven successful, it can be rolled-out to prisons throughout the US.

We are passionate about this program and know it will work!  We need your support so we can begin campaigning the various Prison Boards and hire a grant writer who can assist us in getting the large funding required for this type of initiative.

Please help us change the current course of events and let’s be at the forefront of a new industrial revolution.
The time for change and innovation for the good is NOW!!!


We would like to raise the funds within the next 30 days.

Thank you so much for your thoughts, prayers and donations.
