Outdated Advice

Still need to print your resume on resume paper?  Are Objective statements necessary? Read 10 Outdated Pieces of Job Search Advice from US News.

Be careful when following the advice – the author(s) put some parameters on some of the information.  For example, having a multi-page resume makes sense for someone with multiple years experience, but the one pager is still the norm for entry level.  Or the advice about writing your resume using formal language – being a bit relaxed may be appropriate as long as there is never a question of professionalism.  And know that each industry has its own quirks about the job process – knowing the individual industry’s practices can help guide one in the process.
