  1. Outrageous Resume Mistakes

This blog takes our top spot.  It could be because it as the word “outrageous” in the title or it could be that people checked it out to make sure they weren’t creating any resume crimes of their own. Career Builder had just released a new study that revealed the most outrageous resume mistakes that hiring managers nationwide have experienced. The study also revealed 23 percent of hiring managers admitted to spending less than 30 seconds reviewing a resume. The errors included an applicant listing 40 different jobs in one year, using a different font for each sentence, an applicant that stated they do not like babies or puppies and a resume that was just one sentence long. See what the number one mistake was here.

  1. Candidate Profile: Shatalya Fields

We profiled many candidates throughout the year, but Shatalya Fields’ blog was the most read.  After her entire department got laid off, she did not know where her next job would be.  She had served in the Air Force for five years and after leaving the military she had worked in several positions – from leasing agent to cashier – but was eager to start a career. One of her former co-workers suggested calling That’s Good HR and you’ll have to read on to find out what happened next.
