5 Mistakes Job Seekers Make On Their Resume

I’m not certain if it’s the fact that I took classes in Human Resources, chat with a number of job seekers, have searched for a job at different stages of my career or just my love for writing in general that has made resume writing enjoyable for me.

I’ve had to learn the hard way in many cases which is something that I’ve equally come to take advantage of as I believe that it’s taught me a number of lessons over time which I love sharing here. I’ve had the opportunity to meet with experts in recruitment and all of this has helped me realize a number of mistakes that many candidates make when it comes to their resume.

Aditya Vyas: Job Search Strategies As An Immigrant & More

What are your thoughts on job search in general? I stumbled on Aditya’s LinkedIn post a while back and smiled so wide after reading it. I love how LinkedIn shares posts of people who you aren’t connected to simply because your friend seemed to like the person’s post. Isn’t that the beauty of social media? I was happy to connect with him afterward!

Aditya Vyas is a design and detail orientated mechanical engineer who came to Canada on a Study Permit. He completed his Master’s degree from the University of Windsor in Mechanical with Automotive specialization.

The thing is, the bulk of emails received from immigrants is related to finding a job, so when I saw Aditya’s post, I immediately felt the need to share his story here on Zinny Factor because what better way than hearing from someone in a similar experience as you? This would mean a lot to our audience and those who need to hear such stories.

Now you’re most likely wondering what this LinkedIn post was all about. Here you go!
