1. Your resume must be only one page.
Your resume should be as long as needed. If your experience and background justifies two or more pages, so be it. Recent graduates should have one-page resume, but senior executives with many years of experience will probably need at least three pages.
2. If your resume is good, it will produce a job offer.
Your resume is only a part of the entire process. To succeed in your job search, you need to have a high-quality resume supported by a well-written cover letter. The success rate depends to a great extent on 3 factors i.e. the quality of your resume and cover letter, the market position of your skill set, and your performance in the interview.
3. Fancy formatting matters.
It doesn’t. Even bullets on a resume can sometimes cause encoding problems. The best format to use is the simplest.
4. White lies are OK
Honesty is the best policy. There are many risks involved in lying, but many job applicants don't seem to get the message about the risks of lying. Once the untruth is discovered, you will lose your job. If there are areas that you prefer not to disclose, do not mention about them in your resume. Just don't lie - be honest.
5. Your references must be listed on the resume itself.
A separate page should be used as a reference sheet. Present it later when this will be requested of you as your application progresses to the final stages.
