Employer Perspectives: Résumé and Cover Letter Mistakes by Alyse K

Résumés and Cover Letter Mistakes

During our Winter Career, we asked our employers to give us some insights and feedback. When we asked employers what some common mistakes students make on résumés and cover letters, the top three responses we received from the employers who responded were:

  1. Grammar and Spelling

  2. Wrong company, position, etc listed

  3. Too much irrelevant information or not enough important information

Here are some resources to help you improve your résumé and cover letters:
