MARK KARPINKA

FOUNDER OF WRITE MY RESUME

I have 15 years of progressive Human Resources Management experience.

My expertise is in the areas of Talent Management, Recruitment, and Employee Relations.  (I was the guy who posted the job ad, evaluated your resume, called you for an interview, asked you all those hard questions, and then made you an offer of employment.)

I've been fortunate to work in senior-level, HR Management roles for a variety of private businesses and government institutions.

I have a Bachelors degree and a HR Management certificate.  (I'm a nerd, so its part of my DNA to stay up to date on the latest HR trends and best practices. For example, over the course of 2017 and 2018, I finished the Data Analytic program offered at NAIT, which is located in Edmonton, Alberta. )

I run Write My Resume, the Alberta Resume Writer, and other online business ventures from my home in Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada.

My business partner is my dog, Benny.

Resumes… the Mistakes You Make

Good morning.

I came across a great article the other day that you need to read. It was put out on LinkedIn by Laszlo Bock, SVP, People Operations at Google. The article is titled The Biggest Mistakes I see on Resumes and How to Fix Them. This is a must read because it is simple, practical, and his advice works!

He lists five big mistakes. Chances are very, very good that if you look at your resume right now, you will have made at least one of these mistakes; and let’s face facts- even making one mistake on your resume can cost you an interview for your dream job.

In no particular order, here are the resume mistakes:

1.       Typos

2.       Length

3.       Formatting

4.       Confidential Information

5.       Lies

This is a solid list. It pleases me greatly to see someone of Mr. Bock’s calibre taking the time to remind us all that resume writing is a combination of good grammar, simplicity, clarity and being honest about your knowledge, skills, education and work experience. At WriteMyResume.ca, we strive to practice these great resume writing lessons.
