Verify Your Accuracy

When filling out a job application or writing a resume, you need to be as accurate as possible. This is vitally important because the people who read this will likely run a background check to verify what you are telling them in your application and resume.

They will do this to ensure that you will be a good member of their team and be able to do the work they need. Anytime you make a document that others will read, it never hurts to double and sometimes triple-check the page to ensure you have everything correct.

Ensure you have the correct dates and are forthright with what you do and have done. Minor mistakes can be misinterpreted as you being sloppy with the facts. They will worry about what you will do with their data if you can’t get your facts straight.

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
