  • Description: Your resume needs to be professional and polished because, if not, your application materials probably won't get a second glance from any hiring manager. An unprofessional resume – one that is difficult to read, confusing, covered in errors, or unrelated to the job the person is applying for – will get tossed in the trash right away. Hiring managers often get dozens, even hundreds, of applicants for each job. An unprofessional resume makes you look unprofessional as a job seeker and will cost you a possible interview. Sloppy resumes that are riddled with typos will be ignored and resumes that are inconsistent – bullets in some places, dashes in others, bold in some headings, plain text in others – may not get a second look either.
