Thanks to Richard Gagliano for finding this great list of resume mistakes to avoid.  The only modifications I would make are that objectives can sometimes be helpful, and MSOE students should use 3.0 rather than 3.8 as the cutoff for including their GPAs.

It's so tempting.  Your phone just vibrated in your pocket during a business meeting, and you want to see why.  It could be important, right?  Someone could be awaiting your response.  You could just sneak a peek under the table, and no one would notice.  Or would they?  Would they care? 

 

Check out the link for a cleverly written argument for why you should NOT sneak that peek during a business meeting.

Networking is that topic that everyone hears about, but few people actually embody.  The myths described in this article are a big reason why, and people get scared off by them.  Fortunately, they truly are "myths" and the article does a good job of debunking them:

 

https://www.linkedin.com/today/post/article/20140514212951-397562-four-networking-myths-debunked

 

Here are the myths:

 

Myth #1: Networking means you're looking to use people to achieve selfish goals, or opportunistically ask people for help.

Myth #2: You have to be a born networker or a natural at it.

Myth #3: You must have above average charisma to be a good networker.

Myth #4: You have to be a good talker or an overly chatty “schmoozer” to be a good networker.


You'll have to read the article to find out the truth!
