Attentions to the typography will always keep you safe from the mistakes. First of all take care that your fonts are big enough. The smaller you should go is 11 points, but 12 is probably safer. Do not use capital letters all over the place, remember that your goal is to communicate a message as fast and as clearly as possible. Arial and Times new roman are good choices. Your resume should contain one or two pages at maximum. Just avoid items that will make the employer think in a negative way about you.

One of the most common mistakes that people make is to create a standard resume and send it to all the job openings that they can find. One resume for each employer will always increase your job opportunities. The same point applies to your cover letters.

Remember that you are trying to sell yourself by means of your Resume. Make sure that you resume include the most relevant and reliable information about you and please avoid the lies. This will give you an advantage over the other candidates.

Last but not least tip is Get someone else to review your resume as we usually become blind to our own mistakes or way of reasoning, so another people will be in a good position to evaluate the overall quality of your resume and make appropriate suggestions.  Wishing you all the good luck.
