Click through for five common resume mistakes and ways you can fix them, as identified by Glassdoor.com.

Writing your resume is simple, right? You just open up a Word document and start dumping your responsibilities, a few metrics, and just the right amount of keywords onto the page. And voila, that pesky task is done. Wrong! Resumes are strategic marketing communications that must be created thoughtfully and with oomph.

Books are written on the subject and still careerists struggle. One blog post or article cannot comprehensively guide you on building that perfect resume. That said, in bits, bytes and chunks, we can construct tips and strategies and highlight everyday mistakes to avoid to help you get out of the resume-writing starting gate. This slideshow features five common resume mistakes, identified by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter, MRW writing for Glassdoor.com, along with solutions to fix them so you can more readily land that next great job.
