I just finished the task of going through 90+ resumes for an office administrator position and am quite sick of the mistakes people have in their resumes when they are trying to sell me their best qualities.

I will give you my biggest critiques now:

1) If you're not really an office administrator but are going to apply to the position anyway, AT LEAST change your objective to not say "Looking forward to a position in the teaching community "

2) That's great that you added that you want to be a part of our "growing organization" however, we never put anywhere in the job description that were growing.. maybe we just canned somebody for not being attentive

3) I am very glad that the your only skills include Facebook, Twitter, and that your advanced at the internet... was a specific course needed for this?

4) Actual Words in a resume:
• Proofreader,

Summery /=Summary Words spell checker won't catch everything
