Three of the biggest mistakes in crafting a résumé are also three of the easiest things to fix.

1. Don’t insert a “Miscellaneous” heading. That means nothing. Instead, use more descriptive, specific headings such as “Patents” or “Languages.”

2. Don’t waste words. Replace “Programs related to marketing were administered on a quarterly basis” with “Administered marketing programs quarterly.”

3. Ensure your cover letter matches your résumé: same color, same paper stock, same typeface. Also confirm that any facts in the cover letter match your résumé
