It’s tough enough standing out in a crowded field of candidates. Now that your resume has someone’s attention, could this be the job of your dreams or will your actions turn it into a nightmare? You want to ensure you make a good impression, but it’s not just what you say that can land you or cost you this job. It’s just as important to realize what not to say and do.
