If you are like most hiring managers, it’s the typos in the job-seekers’ résumés that are the No.1 cause for you to automatically dismiss a candidate.

According to a CareerBuilder sur­­vey, here are the rest of the résumé wreckers:

  1. Résumés that are generic and don’t seem personalized for the position.
  2. Résumés that don’t include a list of skills.
  3. Résumés that copy a large amount of wording from the job posting.
  4. Résumés that have an inappropriate email address.
  5. Résumés that don’t include exact dates of employment.
  6. Résumés on decorative paper.
  7. Résumés that include a photo.
