Beware of "One Size Fits All" IT Resume Advice!

It's a rare week that I don't see a blog post or article with the 3, 5, 7, or 10 things that a job seeker MUST or MUST NOT include on a resume.

There's one big problem with articles like this. They go on the assumption that every career is the same, and that there's an simple template - a cookie cutter approach - that works for every career, every resume, every job seeker.

Top 10 Executive Resume Scandals

It seems innocent enough; after all, what does a little white lie on a resume hurt, especially if it’s about a piece of paper you never earned but said you did? Or if you claim to be proficient in certain technical skills when you actually just read an article about the subject in a journal, why does it matter if you won’t be using those skills, only managing people who do the real work? You might justify it by saying you’re just doing it to get in the door, and you’ll fix it later, or you swear you’ll learn the claimed skill as soon as you can.
